Hi,
I have three table designed like following:
tab1 <= many-to-may => tab2
tab2 <= many-to-may => tab3.

I know if I have many-to-many relationship between two table, I need a cross (association) table between them.
but, can I have one cross table between the above described three tables?

thanks.

You need two cross-reference tables.

It will make a mess if you only use one cross table. It can be possible but there would be extra work to check/confirm if the record is for which relationship.
