Hi all,

What Considerations do we need to take for a Basic Database Structure. We have a New project its an Online Food Order Management System, I have assigned for the Basic Database Structure for that project. As i have only 1 year of experience as a SQL Server DBA. I dont have much idea on this. Can any one help me out on this. For this project we are decided to use SQL Server 2008 Express Edition.

Thanks in advance,
OMeswar Reddy Danwada

What do you mean with basic database structure?
Best practices regarding table design? Column data types?
Indexes? Normalization?

Well, that is quite a lot to mention in one forum thread :-)
I think it is best that you search this site and the net for interesting articles on the subject.
And maybe grab a book on database design and principles. (You can start with Codd and CJ Date).
If you have specific questions, you can always ask them here.

I'd start with designing Entity/Relationship diagrams (E/R diagrams), normalization and data types.

Suhas Should JimB01979 use below command?

BACKUP LOG P TO DISK = 'NUL'

with proper considerations.

JimB01979 After this command actually your log will not backup they will be discarded.

Thanks
