Re: [libreoffice-users] Base/HSQL table with more than two dimensions?

case) or more dimensions. Can someone point me in the right
direction? [It seems like this kind of database design issue
should be common to a lot of domains.]

Every extra field added to a record creates another dimension in data
space. So you just need to add a column called, say, year that can take
each of the values 'A', 'B', 'C' or 'D' and then add that field to your
SELECT statement.

Oh, of course: an extra column for each extra dimension. Thanks, Dave.
