using the floor - ceiling approach, you have a separate record for each weight range, this allows to query the database based on the cart weight:

WHERE floor > Cart Weight AND ceiling < cart wight

to return the amount for the weight range.

The benefit here is that you are always using the same amount column in your results.

No, the idea is to create a recordset that pulls the correct delivery amount based on the cart wight, selected shipping type and shipping region

if you use a separate table for each delivery type, you'll need a recordset for each delivery type, and a rule for each delivery type.
