    Investment Banking (2000)

    Investment Banks always seem to have unusual database set-ups. The all seem to have a number of un-linked tables - no links in the Relationships Window (or even Primary Keys), and then to establish links as they need them in Queries. Is there something inherently different about the operations of Investment Banks or, as I suspect, is it just that they tend to have no formal training in databases? Note - I don't know a great deal about Inv.Banking. Andy.

    I would suspect either they don't know much about database design or they come from a database server background, where relationships are handled a bit differently. There is no requirement that relationships be established in advance unless you want to enforce referential integrity. Creating relationships ahead of time enables them to turn up automatically when you create a query, that's all.
