Hello -
am attaching database
2 tables categories and products-
If you open categories - you will see a plus sign and be able to see record related from products table.
I created categories2 table and products2 table and tried to do same thing-
( I usually create joins ( relationships) in queries)
If you open categories2 you will see plus sign - but it gives error "the expression is typed incorrectly or too complex...."
can you tell me how I can make these 2 tables like categories and products?
thank you

CategoryID in Categories is Number format and Text format in Products2

Change CategoryID in Products2 to Number and hopefully it will start working

Your CategoryID in Products2 is actually CategoryName in Categories2
