You have a point.

What i expect is to have a faster access to the stock quantity for each
serial number in the database... i.e.

I m selling a product, instead of making a select sum() on the stock table,
i can just check the products table for the current quantity, and i want
make this using the serial number, for each serial number i ll have a
current quantity thats why i have the second table.

That second table is nothing but the sum of all the records on the other
table wich have a certain serial number, so i dont need to make a select in
N rows, instead i select just ONE value from that table.

Did you undestand where i m trying to get?

thanx in advance,
