    Hi All,

    I am learning and please do not mind basic questions. One of the things which hit me know is the database design.

    Why do we need a database model ( physical or logical) to create a efficient database?

    Is it not possible to have the same using the ssms? We can easily create a new db from ssms.

    Please share your thoughts... links to any good articles.

    Please don't double post.  Most of us look at all topics.  You're just splitting answers when you double post.

    For everyone else, here is the first of two posts that has an answer on it...
