This is a first for me so bear with the example. Simple 2 model application with simple relationship between the two models. Models: Transaction "has_many :steps" Step "belongs_to :transaction" Database tables: transactions (id:integer, name:string) steps (id:integer, transaction_id:integer) So based on this I can create a new transaction in the database no problem. When I try to create a new step for that transaction, rails reports NO error, no excpetions (even with @step.save!), or any other problems during the "CREATE" yet the database doesn't show the new record. I've even validated that the save routine executes, yet the development log doesn't show the actual "INSERT" statement. It seems to skip the insert. If I comment out the relationship everything works fine. I'd like to be able to use scope when referencing objects so this is very annoying. What gives? Is it my choice of names for my models? I haven't been able to find anything that shows my model names are in conflict with a protected keyword (I know transaction is technically an active record method) Help!

Transaction is a reserved word: http://wiki.rubyonrails.org/rails/pages/ReservedWords Try changing the name of your model. Regards, Craig
