Hi i am creating a database design for an online shopping site.In the customer database i collect all the customer information such as name,dob,address,user_name etc and store in a table.now when the customer is buying a product if he wants the product to be delivered to some other address which is not the same address what he gave in the customer information table.then where can i store the new address in the database.do i need to create a separate table for storing the address or is there any other way??

Welcome to the forum. Please read our OraFAQ Forum Guide and How to use [code] tags and make your code easier to read

Your problem is to do with the data model: you need to set up a one-to-many relationship between a table of customers and a table of addresses. Google for DATA NORMALIZATION or perhaps ENTITY RELATIONSHIP MODEL and you will find plenty of advice.

You need to build new data base table in which customers write their new information and make connection of it with old content table. By this why you can automatically get solution of your problem.
