I’m new to Magento and have joined a company in the throes of developing an Ecommerce site I have programming and MS SQL experience but not MySQL.
We have a number of suppliers and the idea is to have customers pick products from supplier catalogues.
Therefore each order may have items from more than one supplier.
When we print out the customer orders for the day can each individual supplier be identified for each line item.
We presently have a single table containing all available line items.
What is the best way to identify and filter line items for each supplier. We need this because there are over 250000 items and
different suppliers will provide price / product updates on a regular basis.

Is all of this achievable and straight forward in the community edition or will i need add in products.

Thanks for your time.
