Table Vs. Field help needed -  Best Practice

Hello All,

 

I've got a simple question for you experienced developers. If one is building, for example, an Asset Database, is it more beneficial to place the assets in their own table (i.e., the HVAC table illustrated in the attached screenshot), whereas every asset category has it's own table or is it a better practice to keep the categories as a field in a main asset table? I'm relatively new to FileMaker, but I've usually done the latter.

 

Any insight would be most appreciated!

 

Thanks!
