    I'm trying to convert scenario into database tables using Star Schema...To do that, I would need dimension tables and fact tables. I'm confused as to how many fact tables are allowed for the star schema..since in the examples that I read, only fact table is used....Are 2 or more fact tables allowed for star schema? Also, in the fact table, only the columns of interest should be shown?

    It's easier to start with one fact table and create dimension tables for that.  It's certainly possible to have more than one fact table in a model, but if you're just starting out, you should probably get your head around that first.
