I've got two models, a Company and a User, and a Company belongs_to a User. When I create/edit a company object, I'd like to be able to modify the associated user. Can I do this directly with form helpers? Something like text_field("company.user", "login") Right now I'm having a user object and a company object, and then associating them with @company.user = @user in my controller. Just wondering if I can use the association directly, or if there's some preferred way to do this. Pat
