Bonus TIPS for Successful Posting

Try a Search First
It is highly recommended that a Search be done on your topic before posting, as many questions have been answered in prior posts. As with any search engine, the shorter the search term, the more "hits" will be returned, but the more specific the search term is, the greater the relevance of those "hits". Searching for "table" might well return every message on the board while "tablesum" would greatly restrict the number of messages returned.

When you do post
First, make sure you are posting your question in the correct forum. For example, if you post an issue regarding Desktop applications on the Mobile & Browser Applications board , not only will your question not be seen by the appropriate audience, it may also be removed or relocated.

The more detail you provide about your problem or question, the more likely someone is to understand your request and be able to help. A sample database with a minimum of records (and its support files, zipped together) will make it much easier to diagnose issues with your application. Screen shots of error messages are especially helpful.

When explaining how to reproduce your problem, please be as detailed as possible. Describe every step, click-by-click and keypress-by-keypress. Otherwise when others try to duplicate your problem, they may do something slightly different and end up with different results.

A note about attachments
You may only attach one file to each message. Attachment file size is limited to 2MB. If you need to include several files, you may do so by zipping them into a single archive.

If you forgot to attach your files to your post, please do NOT create a new thread. Instead, reply to your original message and attach the file there.

When attaching screen shots, it is best to attach an image file (.BMP, .JPG, .GIF, .PNG, etc.) or a zip file of several images, as opposed to a Word document containing the screen shots. Because Word documents are prone to viruses, many message board users will not open your Word file, therefore limiting their ability to help you.

Similarly, if you are uploading a zipped archive, you should simply create a .ZIP file and not a self-extracting .EXE as many users will not run your EXE file.

    Re: Many To Many?

    I misread.

    Then change from one to one to one to many in the set.

    A join only gives a one to one.

    A set can do a one to many.

    Re: Many To Many?

    Thanks AL. ..
    But I'm not sure I understand your suggestion

    There is a one to many relationship between OrderDetail and consultcpo. . There can be many consultants on an order... they all get credit for every product.

    You can make a set with a one to one link from OrderDetail to Consultcpo linking the Ordernum.

    Then copy the set to the new table.

    Many To Many?

    I have two .dbf tables: Orderdetail.dbf and Consultcpo.dbf

    Orderdetail.dbf   Fields
    Ordernum   Productnum   
    2001               345
    2001               777
    2002               102
    2003               200
    2003               654
    2003               765
    etc                   etc
    ie the Orderdetail table has one record for each product on the Order

    Consultcpo Fields
    Ordernum      Consultnum
    2001                 156
    2002                 345
    2002                 366
    2003                 156
    etc                      etc
    ie the Consultcpo table has one record for every Consultant on the Order

    I want to create a new table that allows me to associate each Consultant with all of the products on the orders

    New Table Fields
    Ordernum        Consultnum       Prodnum
    2001                   156                  345
    2001                   156                  777
    2002                   345                  102
    2002                   366                  102
    2003                   156                  200
    2003                   156                  654
    2003                   156                  765
    etc                        etc                   etc
    I have been trying Joins and Intersections but neither works.

    How can I create an association between Consultants and Products sold?
