The customerID field is a unique area because each customer will have their unique customerID thus the reason for its use as the primary key. The newly introduced tables allow us to have several booked tours associated with a customer thus increasing the flexibility of the system. It also reduces the storage space required.

In the new data model the customer information is subsidiary to sales information, the trigger is identified as “for each statement type” and is an additional data set for the salesperson each time the tour booking triggers the event.

Under the new structure in which the client information is subordinate to sales information, this trigger would be identified as “for each statement type” and would add data set for the ...Show more
