I think I may have already answered this in my reply to your other
question, have a look at the Rails Guide on ActiveRecord
Relationships. But probably start with Getting Started guide.

Dear Collin,

I feel that I am not clearly explained you, here I included the clear
explanation about the problem. I included models, controller and View.
Please, find the mistake in it and tell me.

name model
has_many :city, :foreign_key => “name_id”
has_many :country, :foreign_key => “name_id”
*
city model*
belongs_to :name

country model
belongs_to :name

In Name Controller
@names = Name.find(:all, :conditions=>{:first_name => params[:gm],
:second_name => params[:sp]}, :include => [ :city, :country ])

In Name View

<% @names.each do |name| %>
<%= name.age %>
<% end %>

<% @names.cities.each do |city| %>
<%= city.local_area %>
<% end %>

<% @names.countries.each do |country| %>
<%= country.state %>
<% end %>

has_many models should be pluralized

class name < ActiveRecord::Base
has_many :cities
has_many :countries
end

http://railscasts.com/episodes/47-two-many-to-many

Hi,

I tried with

In View

<% @names.each do |name| %>
<%= name.age %>
<% name.cities.each do |city| %>
<%= city.local_area %>
<% name.countries.each do |country| %>
<%= country.state %>
<% end %>

This shows no error with no output of city.local_area and country.state

<%= city.local_area %>
<%= country.state %>

Dear All,

Finally, tables are connecting and displaying data once i provided
“set_primary_key”. I read about role of “foreign key” in connecting
table.
But, I dont know the role of “primary_key” in connecting tables. Anybody
knows it???

You are probably getting an “undefined method ‘cities’ for #<Array:blah
blah>” error. Address each hierarchy level in turn…

<% @names.each do |name| %>
<% name.cities.each do |city| %>
<%= city.local_area %>
<% end %>
<% end %>

<% @names.each do |name| %>
<% name.countries.each do |country| %>
<%= country.state %>
<% end %>
<% end %>
