Hello Experts,

I am creating a database (taking help from experts-exchange)
Currently I have these tables,

1.People
PeopleID
Name
isSuperAdmin

2.Society
SocietyID
SocietyName

3.SocietyPeople
PeopleID
SocietyID
IsSocietyAdmin

What I need to track is, which SuperAdmin created SocietyAdmin member.
And which SuperAdmin/SocietyAdmin creates society people.
(SuperAdmin can create member for any society while SocietyAdmin can create members for his society only)

My previous quetion is posted here,

I think you need this query:
Select SuA.PeopleID as SuperAdminID, SuA.Name as SuperAdminName,
SoA.PeopleID as SocietyAdminID, SoA.Name as SocietyAdminName
FROM People SuA INNER JOIN SocietyPeople s1 ON SuA.PeopleID = s1.PeopleID AND SuA.isSuperAdmin
INNER JOIN SocietyPeople s2 ON s1.SocietyID = s2.SocietyID
INNER JOIN People SoA ON SoA.PeopleID = s2.PeopleID AND s2.IsSocietyAdmin

The tables you've designed aren't sufficient for what you need. you probably need another table to log who did what. like the one below:

Log
-----
ID
UserID
TableName
TableID
ActionType (Insert/Update)
Date
Notes

Hi chaau,
Thanks for the reply.
I need to add a "CreatedBy" column to track who add the members.

(
Which SuperAdmin created SocietyAdmin
Which SocietyAdmin created SocietyMember
Which SuperAdmin created SocietyAdmin
)

How the tables should be changed?

Thank you experts.
What will the good approach :
1. Create a log table and put the entries for tracking who made the change
or
2. Put createdby in each table

e.g,

1.News
NewsiD
Title
Desc
ValidTill
SocietyId
CreatedBy (Better if we put it here and make relation with People?)

Or put the entry in log table?

There are other table also like Events/ Request and so on
