Hi all, I'm having two tables: contacts (belongs_to) company details. The problem is this. In the company table I have a field "pid" (parent id). Which relates a company (being a possible subsidiary) to it's parent e.g. a bigger enterprise. Does the belongs_to work when related to the same model (table). The relation is upwards only for now. I don't want to see all subsidiaries of an enterprise (yet). Do I need a seperate table to establisch this link properly in my data scheme? Thanx (again) Gerard -- "Who cares if it doesn't do anything? It was made with our new Triple-Iso-Bifurcated-Krypton-Gate-MOS process ..." My $Grtz =~ Gerard; ~ :wq!
