I have two tables cms_pages and cms_menus cms_menus has a foreign key to cms_pages.id so when i create a new link i can releate to a page. Insert is fine, but when i do a list of cms_menus and i want to know the page name i just put menu.cms_page.name but i get an error that cms_page is nil, now what is driving me crazy is the fact that if i do an menu.cms_page.inspect i have all the information of that page. I tried with menu.cms_page[:name] menu.cms_page['name'] menu.cms_page.name NOTHING, all the ohters models releation works fine why i have this here!!!!1 Thanks claudio

I can't think of any reason for that to not work other than that you have mistakenly used a bad field name... ie cms_page.name is not a valid reference. If you can reference menu.cms_page at all, then it should be returning a full AR model, and you should be able to use it like any other model. If you could include the class definitions and maybe table definitions, might be able to help more.
