    technical issue regarding sybase Database Design and I hope you can show us solution for it.


    I am Phani Sridhar Edala a Database Programmer Analyst who works for a Direct Mail Company
    called USA-Direct Inc. We are developing a fund raising application and we came across a
    technical issue regarding Database Design and I hope you can show us solution for it.

    The issue is

    Nouns in the given Problems

    1.Campaign
    2. Packages (Different types packages with in a campaign)
    3. Segments (Different types of segments with in a Package)
    4.Mailcodes (Different types of mail codes with in a Segment

    Verbs for the given Noun

    Campaign
    Campaign Code
    Description
    Start Date
    End date
    Active Flag
    Goal

    Package

    Package Code
    Campaign Code
    Description
    Start Date
    End date

    Segment
    Segment Code
    Package Code
    Description

    Mail Code

    Mail Code
    Segment Code
    Package Code
    Description
    Mail date
    Mail Qty
    Active Flag
    Mail Cost

    This is the Present Database Design
    But Our Client Request is to have multiple Campaigns, multiple packages, multiple segments,
    multiple mail codes that is fine and at the same time we should handle to have unique packages
    with in a campaign but the same package code can exist with another package

    For E.g.
    Campaign codes are
    C01, C02, C03, C04
    Package Codes are
    P01, P02, P03, P04
    Segment Codes are
    S01, S02, S03, S04
    Mail Codes are
    M01, M02, M03, M04

    Taking this into picture

    P01 can exist in all the campaign and at the same time should be unique with that specific
    campaign

    At the same time

    S01 can exist in all the packages and at the same time should be unique with that specific
    package
    M01 can exist in all the segments and at the same time should be unique with that specific
    segment

    The whole Picture looks like Tree Structure like as hierarchical database Model


    I would really appreciate if you could suggest some sought of model or a concept in achieving
    this Issue or any sought of Implementation Techniques of having hierarchical structure in an
    RDBMS.

    Right now we are using Sybase SQL Anywhere Server as our database and Power Builder has Front
    end Tool.

    Please excuse me if you have hard time in understanding my words or sense

    Thank you for your time
    Any sort of help will be greatly appreciated
