Well, first off, you forgot to end the Trade class. And you forgot to
give it a table name.

Once you’ve done that, and you’ve created your instance of the Trade
class (let’s call it trade, just to be simple…) and a bunch of Tag
classes with silly names:

trade.tags = [cheese, timeshare, lubricant]

i tried that but does not work.
i do have the table defined
CREATE TABLE tags_trades (
tag_id int(11) NOT NULL,
trade_id int(11) NOT NULL
) ENGINE=InnoDB DEFAULT CHARSET=latin1;

i get error when assigning many to many relationship

a=Trade.find(1)

You don’t replace a habtm relationship with an assignment, you add to it

a.tags << z
