How to get started with relational database
I have the need to understand "how to get started" with "terms" that a newbie can understand please?
I would like to create a Relational Search whereby the end result will be either a:
- web-page form or...
- a .pdf form
The Primary level search would be for "Bond" and the search criteria would be first in this order:
- In what State do you require the Bond?
- What Class of Bond do you require? (This is drop down menue or dynamic text...examples would bid bond, payment bond, license bond)
- What Category of Bond?
- Obligee (relational to State)
Then, upon submit... there would be either a "web-page" with "web-form" or a specific .pdf form displayed.
As I think about this it could be set up kind of like a shopping cart?
There could also be some conditionals in here such as have you ever had a bond declined?
Or, Have you ever had a claim?
Then depending on their response " Yes / No" the "web form" or "pdf form" would display.
And, if anyone knows "lifecycle designer?" and would know how to dynamically link a web form data to a .pdf form...cudos!
I hope this makes sense.
I would even be willing to come up with some money to have someone show me "slowly" how to do such a task. Money is tight so I am Johnny poor boying it right now
