I have a number of tables of which I use to compute totals. For example I
table : players_master
I can easily compute totals for the field rating. However, at the end of a
set period within my application, the values in the rating field are
changed. As a result my computed totals would then be incorrect.
Is the best way to overcome this problem to either compute the total and
store as a total value (which wouldn't change in the future), or to store
the rating values in a different table altogether and compute when required.
If you need table information please let me know and I can send this.
