Act! Table Relationship contacts and addresses

I understand that Act! has some encrypted functions that I can't see. Does that have anything to do with why I can't seem to figure out the relationship between tbl_contact and tbl_address? Am I missing something? Is there a way around this? I write views in SQL and then use them for reporting in MSAccess. I can't add an address to a contact because there are multiple addresses for each contact_id in the tbl_address table. What am I missing? Thanks!

I wear a lot of hats...

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

No, that's not it.

Have a look at these:

There are two ways to connect OLEDB (which already has the views) and ODBC - the best option depends on which version of ACT! you have and the types of info you're trying to get
