Hi
Assuming I have 2 tables
Table1
Table1ID (Autonumber)
Name (Text)

Table 2
ID (Autonumber)
Table1ID (for table relationship)
wathebver (text)


I want to create table 2 programatically

CREATE TABLE Table2
(
   IDAUTOINCREMENT PRIMARY KEY,
   Table1ID INTEGER NOT NULL CONSTRAINT FK_Table1ID  
        REFERENCES Table1 (Table1ID),
    NoteDate DATETIME
)

this is creating the relationship but the display in the table is the ID from table 1, how can i change that to be the "Name" field in Table1 like when i do it from the wizard in Access?

thank you
