Thanks, I think it's pretty much what I needed, however when I look at the address layout I cant see the names of the author, producer or artist created, I just see the address. Also, when I look at the file in Layout mode all my fields say things like "powerful scripts" "customizable buttons" and things like that instead of the actual field name. How can i take that off.

Thanks.

First, in layout mode go to View>Show>Sample Data and uncheck. That's a method to use to make sure your relationships are working. You will see the correct data in the fields while in layout mode.

Next, I played with the name problem and perhaps someone with more experience can figure that out. Since you have 3 separate tables for Artist, Author and Producer I could not get the name in the address layout. Personally, I would have set up one table with a "Type" field and set my relationships based on type. Then I could get the data from any related table Occurrence. But, I didn't want to re-write your solution.

I thought about the type field but then didn't know how to handle the fact that sometimes one person can be an author, a producer, or an artist, and that this person can appear in one or more albums or songs and I dont want to duplicate all that data.

Thanks for all your help
