What has worked for me... in myfile.rhtml <%= this_controller.field_name %> <%= this_controller.another_controller.field_name %> and in this_controller.rb def myfile @this_controller This_controller.find(params[:id]) @another_controller AnotherController.find(:all) end and also, you must set your has/belongs to/ etc. in the models I hope this helps Craig

Assume you want to render a view linking people and jobs together, for some hypothetical application. You've got two tables, 'people' and 'jobs', that you want to drag info from for this one form. In your controller: jobs_controller.rb ... def link_people_to_jobs @jobs = Job.find(:all) @people = Person.find(:all) ... end Then, in your view: <% @jobs.each do |job| @people.each do |person| ...(do cool stuff here) end end %> Note that you should *define* @jobs and @people in your controller, not try to define them in your view.
