I am trying to save a 1 to many relationship using rails. My parent record (Event) is saved fine, but the child records (Schedules) do not get inserted into the db. Can someone please tell me what I'm doing wrong? Thanks, Doug class AdminController < ApplicationController def save @event = Event.new @event.title = "Surfing 101" @event.description = "Introductory class for beginners." @event.location = "Sunset Beach" @event.save @sch1 = Schedule.new @sch1.start_time = "8:00am" @sch1.max_enrollment = 6 @sch2 = Schedule.new @sch2.start_time = "10:00am" @sch2.max_enrollment = 4 @schedules = Array.new([@sch1, @sch2]) @event.schedules << @schedules @event.update end end class Event < ActiveRecord::Base has_many :schedules validates_presence_of :title, :description, :location, :active end class Schedule < ActiveRecord::Base belongs_to :events validates_presence_of :sch_time, :max_enrollment end create table events ( id int not null auto_increment, title varchar(30) not null, description varchar(200) not null, location varchar(30) not null, active boolean default true, primary key (id) ); create table schedules ( id int not null auto_increment, event_id int not null, start_time varchar(30) not null, max_enrollment int not null, constraint fk_event_schedule foreign key (event_id) references events(id), primary key (id) ); E-MAIL CONFIDENTIALITY NOTICE: The contents of this e-mail message and any attachments are intended solely for the addressee(s) and may contain confidential and/or legally privileged information.

A large proportion of that is unneccesary. Try: def save unless @event = Event.create(:title => "Surfing 101", :description => "Introductory class for beginners.", :location => "Sunset Beach") ... do your error stuff end unless @sch1 = @event.create_in_schedules(:start_time => "8:00am", :max_enrollment => 6) # A Time object would be better for start time. ... do your error stuff end unless @sch2 = @event.create_in_schedules(:start_time => "10:00am", :max_enrollment => 4) ... do your error stuff end end
