Ah, it's been a while since I've done any rails -- I almost forgot how deceptively easy it is... ...to get yourself totally lost ;) Anyway, I probably did this all backwards, but I created my table by writing a migration file, then rake db:migrate. So far, so good. I even whipped up a quick script to grind through some tab-separated text and fill the table -- yay. ...But I seem to have forgotten the format for a model file, and I was thinking it sure would be handy if I could just point some generator or similar helper-script at the sql table and say "make me a model file that looks like that." About what do I want to read more? (Already trying to find all my old tutorials that include how to write a model file -- I mean in terms of "does it for you" scripts :D) Thanks!

Hi Olie, Olie D. wrote: > ...But I seem to have forgotten the format for a model file, Perhaps the easiest thing to do to stimulate your memory might be to scaffold yourself a sandbox app. For the quick fix, just create a file named 'singular_version_of_your_table_name.rb' with the following, minimim, content. class SingularVersionOfYourTableName < ActiveRecord::Base end HTH, Bill
