we have to made seprate table for that.

Rehans,
Is it a one to one relationship or a correlation? If one non-key field is always the same value given the value of another non-key field, you need a separate table. If it is a correlation (like it is usually a certain value), that is fine.
 
I agree. Here's the link: http://aspose.com/file-tools
