Analyzing a Table with the Table Analyzer
Tip
Read the Normalization
section in the appendix
titled “Relational
Databases and Database
Design” for more informa-
tion about normalization
and third normal form.
The Table Analyzer analyzes a single table and, if necessary, splits it into two or more

table. When the Table Analyzer encounters redundant data, it removes redundant fields
from the table and then places the redundant fields in new tables.
