Ahh, I was in too much of a hurry there. You posted in an ok forum, I thought that you had pm'd me, but rather, you reported the post. do not do that the report post function is not to be used for you to try to get your question posted faster, it is there to report innappropriate or abusive posts.

In answer to your actual question, it looks like you are trying to get other people to design a databse for you. That isn't going to happen here, sorry. If you have specific questions, feel free to post them though.

Fine here is my idea, Tell me if I need to imporve or change..

There are 2 table im going to use for that
1. warehouse_master(warehouse_id, warehouse_name)
2. current_stock(item_code, item_descripton, quantity, warehouse_id).

What my worry is if my product master has more item like 1000 items then i need to repeat all item for each warehouse in order to maintain warehouse wise.

Does this will affect the perfomence when I fetch the details on forms?

Is there anyother way to achive this?

Now please share your idea..

Thanks.

I would suggest a table in between your two tables.
1 table for the warehouse, 1 table for the stock items, 1 table that lists each stock item and in which warehouse(s) it sits.

Now, since this is clearly an extremely simplified set of data, I'm assuming that this is school work, is that correct?

Let's assume this is homework. You probably need to think about Third Normal Form. To formalize Pablo's analysis:
One warehouse may contain many items; one item may be present in many warehouses. This a many-to-many relationship, and as good relational engineers, we do do not permit such a thing. You resolve the many-to-many relationship by putting a third entity between the two, which will state how many of the item are in a particular warehouse.

(edit: corrected "any" to "many" in the sentence above. JW.)

HAve a go yourself first. It should all be in your text book, if not, Google "third normal form" and "normalization" and you'll soon get a few ideas.

It would be helpful if you followed Posting Guidelines - http://www.orafaq.com/forum/t/88153/0/

realize that we all can read & write SQL so instead of describing in words any TABLE, just post actual DDL

every application should be designed to at least Third Normal Form
