    I have created a somewhat complex relational db and would like to
    populate the db using EDDs. The EDDs would be the required information
    to be uploaded into several tables.
    Two questions:

    Is an update query the best way to populate those tables using an EDD?

    I will probably have no problem if all the fields populated in the EDD
    are unique values. I was wandering what should I do if some of the
    fields in the specific record are new and some are repeated values

    e.g.

    table 1contains author and relevant information about author
    table 2 contains the publication information

    if I uplaod and edd with an author that is not yet entered in the db I
    do not foresee having any problems. If i upload an edd that has a
    preentered author but a new publication, I would like the publication
    to be updated and be assigned to that author, but not for the author to
    be added again to that table..

    sorry if this is convoluted... any help would be great... thanks

    'Fraid I'm not familiar with the terminology. What's an "Electronic Data
    Deliverable"?

    And I really don't have any idea what kind of data structure you have in
    place to "receive" these deliverables...

    More info, please...
