Records = Days, Table1=Actual Times, Table2= Deadline Times. There are
about 25 times. I compare the actual times against the deadline times. To
show if we made our deadlines.

I have 5 users with different times to input. (They are in different
departments.) So, Each user is editing a different field on the same
record. Sometimes at the same time. I am going to split the database when
everything is done, but I need to know whether it would be better to break
the Actual Table times into 5 separate tables, one for each department (or
user). The data is based upon the department and not the individual. The
amount of tables would never need to change.

It is easier to analyze 1 table then 5. That is why I would like to stick
to one table. I just think it may not be feasible.
