In my effort to learn rails, I'm writing a personal Information Management "system". So, something where I can track passwords, credit cards, ssn, drivers license, etc. What I have done, and perhaps not correctly, is created a table for each category. I want to create a master list page. One view that displays all the data from the various tables by category. Do I fail as a database designer or is there a way to make this happen easily? Is there a tutorial I might benefit from? I started off creating a categories, passwords and creditcards table. I can enter data into all three. I have the relationship between categories and passwords and categories and creditcards working just fine. I started to create a join between creditcards_passwords thinking that I could then create the scaffold and view from there that would allow me to see all my password and credit card entries in one combined list, but Iâ??m feeling like I might be way off the reservation on this approach. Thanks for the help. K.
