Hi, I have read the data file content out. But I still can't figure out the meaning of the field "owner".

Here is the description of the assignment:

Customer holding this record

owner

The id value (an 8 digit number) of the customer who has booked this. Note that for this application, you should assume that customers and CSRs know their customer ids. The system you are writing does not interact with these numbers, rather it simply records them. If this field is all blanks, the record is available for sale.


So, do I need to randomly generate a customer id to each user(client)? Do I need to write the ids to this field when customer books this record?

In my files, all the record values in this field are blanks, so all the records are available?

thanks in advance!

You need to enter the customer ID in, just like when the CSR is making a booking for a customer. Thats how I did it.

yup. It's said quite clearly in my assignment that the customer knows his customer ID so there's no generation of anything there.
