Hi all.

I'm new to this forum. Ive taught myself FM over the past three years and am a decent developer. I work for a small charter school district in Colorado. I have designed an information system for one school, and am expanding it to three schools.

You can read more about me in my profile. I'm glad to be on this network. I'm excited to be able to post questions.


My first question: What are the typical naming conventions for fields, tables, primary keys, foriegn keys, etc? I am starting to consult with a friend of mine who's on here somewhere, and he told me some of the conventions. What are the other ones/ all of them?

 

Thanks.

I'm sure i'll have thousands more questions if that's alright.
