Hi, I hope someone can help, I am stumped. I have a Registration ActiveRecord object. It records registrations for people for classes. class Registration has_and_belongs_to_many :people has_and_belongs_to_many :scheduled_courses end I have a form that allows someone to register. A registration form will register two people. They fill in their names, addresses, and the classes they want to register. I am trying to uniquely identify the first and last names of the two registrants in my form so that the rails magic will work for filling in the relationships. I saw that for checkboxes, you can do <%= check_box("registration[people_ids]", "last_name", ..... and that will make rails do the magic to populate the people_ids for each instance of the person and last_name field. It doesn't seem to work for text fields, e.g. <%= text_field ("registration[people_ids]", "last_name") %> I have tried every variant of the incantation I could, and nothing works. Is my only hope to do <%= text_field("registration", "person1_last_name") %> <%= text_field("registration", "person2_last_name") %> ? Any help on how to get a form to handle fields on related objects is greatly appreciated. Thanks Bob E.
