I am new to d7 and I am writing an install script. This install script needs to create a content type (I've done that) and then create lots of fields that are used in this.
The problem I have found is that d7 automatically creates lots of tables for each field. Considering I will have something like 60+ fields per content type, this isn't very practical.
How can I code into my .install file a way of making all these fields be in a single table e.g. |ID|value1|value2|value3| instead of 3 tables for value1,2,3
