The Genre data is already arranged like this:
Genre::ID (Unique Key)
The Platform data is 'simple'. ID and Name. But each item could be multiple platforms. (Example #1 vs. Example #2)
An item can have multiple Genre Categories related to it, and those usually have a single choice from within their Category, but might have multiples.
It's supporting the possible multiples that I'm trying to work out. At this point there's 15 possible Genre Categories that each Item could have a selection from. Most have 4-6 of them.
Example 1: Items::Table on the left, Genre::Table on the right, with some Genre Categories (Genre, Perspective, Pacing, Gameplay, Interface, Setting) and their sub-options.
This one has just one sub-option per category.
Example 2: The Gameplay Genre Category has two sub-options related to it.
Example Genre Table content:
Just cracking the surface on One to One and One to Many relationships, I don't think this scenario is quite covered this way.
Would each of those Genre Categories be portals showing only their related category ID?
I presume that I would add fields to the Items::Table so I can pull related records:
But those only support one relationship.
Would I make value lists from those Genre Categories and Platforms and set them as tick box fields?
This should be easy, but my brain just won't cooperate!
I'm moving a bunch of stuff and want to inventory what is in each moving container. I have a very simple parent-child relationship with the parent record having the container number and category of parts/equipment/supplies and the child records describe each piece of equipment in the container. I have a portal with the child records showing for each container, but want to put anatto-entered item number for each piece that has the container number followed by a dash and then followed by a serialized number for each item in that particular container. For example, I would have container 1 labeled "Glassware" and Container 2 labeled "Chemicals". In Container 1's portal I'd like to see:
Item Description Qty
1-1 Beakers, 500ml 4
1-2 Beakers, 250 ml 2
and in Container 2's portal I'd like to see:
Item Description Qty
2-1 Potassium 4 g
2-2 Sodium 26 g
I'd like to auto-fill the item numbers, but can't figure out how to reset the serialization for each parent record.
Any help is greatly appreciated.
Thanks and keep yourselves safe!
The problem is I have a value list that is based on 2 fields from another table, the first field is Order and the second is the Description, but it only populates with the first field which is a number and doesn't make sense. We need the description. I've had this problem before and worked around it, and I wish there was a simple way to solve this. So I made a calculation that concatenates the 2 fields for the value list, and the script trigger sets the field with the description without the number included (the script trigger does other things as well). But I realize not all of the value list is sorted correctly because it's a text field. Maybe a new calculation?
Sorry for being long winded, any ideas on how to resolve this issue would be appreciated.

So I am fairly new to this and I am trying to get a inventory database set up. I am working on making the database a that is in 3nf. I am trying to pull information on a drop down menu from different tables. I have attached how they are related below. The input menu does not show me anything from the drop down menu, though there is data there. Do I need to create a desperate table for title data where I store information or am I missing a step to pulling the data from the other table?
