Manager1 and Manger2 - to make it clear Person To manage Sales, Person to manage Purchasing

1 is Manager ID
2 is manager ID

So to answer your question YES Manger 1 is related to managers.manager_id

Thanks in advance,

Roman

I would suggest altering your design to something more like:

tblCompanies
----------------------------------------------------------
CompanyID (PK)
CompanyName

tblRoles
----------------------------------------------------------
RoleID (PK)
RoleDescr

tblManagers
----------------------------------------------------------
ManagerID (PK)
LName
FName

tblManagerCompany
----------------------------------------------------------
CompanyID (PK, FK)
ManagerID (PK, FK)
RoleID (FK)

With this structure, you can track additional managers if you need to, without having to alter your
basic design.

shasund your solution didnt work for some reason.

matthewspatrick, I have though of that the problem is that I have this information updated on the Companies section. If I create the way you mention I will have to update different tables @ the same time. I belive its will be difficult.

Please explain what you mean.  The design I suggested should *eliminate* the need to update more
than one table at a time, because it removes redundant data.

From Company A
LEFT JOIN Managers B ON B.Manager_ID = A.Manager1_ID
LEFT JOIN Managers C ON C.Manager_ID = A.Manager2_ID
