HI experts:

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 ...

Actually ... First - Open the Relationships Window.  Then, drag the tables of interest onto that Window from the Database window/container ... Or ... right click over the Rel window ... and select Show Table ...   and pick you tables.

Thank you so much for your kind, prompt response.

I will check all of your tips and come back to you soon!

By the way, I posted one more question regarding how to bend dynamic connector in MS Visio 2003.

Hope you may kindly help me with that too!
