one to many relationship in 3 tables

Guest

I have three tables I need to relate. One is an Event table and for each
Event, there can be many sessions (that relationship is easy). Then I need to
relate the Sessions table to the Members table as there can be one Session
with many members attending. It seems simple to make a one-to-many
relationship between Event table and the Session table, and then another
between the Session table and the Members table.

But my problem comes when I try to create a data entry form that lists the
fields from the Event table and the various Sessions information and the
Members at each session. All I can find only shows how to link two tables and
show that on a form by making the Primary table the basis for the form, and
the foreign table a subform. How do I get the 3rd table (I guess it would be
a sub-subform?) represented on the form?

Any ideas?

Thanks, Gina

Event--(1,M)--Session--(1,M)--Attendance--(M,1)--Member

Attendance PK is (SessionID, MemberID)

You should be able to nest like this:
Event - single form
Session - single form
Attendance (combobox for Members.) - format as datasheet if you
want

thanks so much for the info...are you saying I should have FOUR tables? it
looks like you have the Event, then the Session, then the Attendance and then
the Member? what is difference between Attendace and Member?
