two currently accepted names

two currently accepted names

We have one old taxonomic name which now represents two new taxonomic names (it split).  Therefore, the old taxonomic name "Currently Accepted ?" = No, but we want to put two values in the "Currently Accepted Name".  What are some solutions?
Thanks

Re: two currently accepted names

Hi Bill,

I realise the NHM have a different Taxonomy setup to pretty much the rest of the client-base. So I don't know if this will help.

We have a slightly simpler view of the taxonomy module for the mineralogists that facilitates this multi-valued attachment.
Although, rather than attaching to 'Current Name' which would generate an inaccurate synonymy relationship we have a separate multi-valued 'composite mineral' attachment.

Happy to elaborate, if required.

Dave,
Thanks! I was wondering if implementing a table was a possibility.  Glad to know that's one option.
