Recurring Diary Entry Problem.

TC
Hi, I have an app that is going to require recurring diary entries, it's a
relatively simple app but I have no idea how to go about the recurring entry
side of things.

The functionality needs to be similar to outlook in the way the recurring
entries work, but the system will be built around a MySql database and I
don' want to add thousands of records, although each recurring entry could
contain different information.

Any ideas would be gratefully received.

I don't know how Outlook does it, but I think you could have just a
single Master entry and then a separate entry for each occurrence that
has any data that is different than the master. Or a secondary table
that held recurrence information for each entry that has it.
