Default Implementation of Figure 14.4

Hello Rod. I have read a few of your books. No doubt your approach of database design is superior from others. They are very practical. However I'm quite disappointed that you do not implement the design of figure 14.4 in a database. You could at least make available a download of the full implementation in Access 2007 so that I could understand its implementation. Make up a couple of fictionous data for all the tables and create some forms and queries.

You see Rod, I've been crawling to arrive at fig 14. 4 and then, oh no! It stops here. The design is quite complex. If you need to write another book, lets say "Beginning Database Design Continued", and show the implementation, then I would look forward to buy it.

For instance I'm lost as to why [Persons] to [Vendors] and [Customers] are 1 to 1 but [Persons] to [Employees] is 1 to many. And how is the [Persons] table functioning to its subclasses. Oh, so much confusion...
