  • Fields:
    • Name will at first be set only by us, but later on customers will be able to set it and will be increasingly in charge of it.
    • Search_raw should probably be replaced by a hash at some point, because it's just a value to make it easier to detect when Search needs recalculation
    • State probably needs to be separate fields for as-entered and code-if-known
    • ID_Cust is a new field for the migration; I had this wacky idea that customers might need to share addresses (one customer buys a present for a friend; friend sets up an account and then moves, first friend buys another present but doesn't get the updated address... egh). (Consequently, the [Contacts x Addrs] table in the Access version will be going away too.)
  • History:
    • 2009-07-09 Moved to separate wiki page; no design changes
    • 2011-11-22 Added WhenEnt and WhenUpd
