I`m using the joing model Part to access Treinando from Evento. This code works well: @treinandos = Evento.find(params[:evento_id]).treinandos But the parts table has some more columns I need to retrieve addtionally. Even after some docs/googling and tests I was not able to append this information to the resulting object @treinandos. Can you give some hints about how to do it? Models: class Treinando < ActiveRecord::Base has_many :parts has_many :eventos, :through => :parts end class Part < ActiveRecord::Base belongs_to :treinando belongs_to :evento end class Evento < ActiveRecord::Base has_many :parts has_many :treinandos, :through => :parts end

Well, I found a way, but it is not a optimized (rails way) one, since it executes a find for each "part" record, more some selects. parts = Evento.find(params[:evento_id]).parts @treinandos =  parts.each do |part| obj = Treinando.find(part.treinando_id) obj[:padrinho] = part.padrinho.nome if part.padrinho_id obj[:presenca] = part.presenca @treinandos << obj end If you have any idea about the rails way to do it, please tell me.
