I am using MS Access 2007 to create a relationship between tables.

I would like to learn how to create a connector line which represents one-to-many (optional or compulsory) relationships.

Thanks a lot!

Drag the Primary Key field from the 'one' table to the related (Foreign Key) field in the Many table.  The Relationships dialog will appear.  Check 'Enforce Referential Integrity'.  Check Cascade Updates and/or Deletes as appropriate per the 'business rules' of your application.

That's it ...
