in reply to Storing multiple value field in a MySQL database

ISTM you need an array data type like more advanced databases (than Oracle's MySQL) have. I'm a bit surprised that MySQL doesn't have them (yet).

According to Oracle's MySQL website:

MySQL will implement a data type, ARRAY, to store variable-sized arrays, in compliance with Standard SQL (SQL:2003) array functionality.

So for an array datatype you have to wait, or switch to a more flexible RDBMS. (I'm pretty sure that Oracle too has had Arrays for a long time, since version 7 or so)
