Statistics say “25 – 30 % of all tables for an application are lookup tables”. Whether you are working on a “small” or “big” application it is worth analysing this problem and try to generalise the solution. Saving developer’s time is saving money, less code means less bugs, code once and reuse the code through the application(s). I’ll show you my thinking about this problem and give you some examples you can use in your applications. You can, of course change the code, improve it and modify the solution in any way.
