    Primary and foreign key in relationships?


    Hi there

    I am having some trouble with Access that I hope you can help with.

    I currently have two tables.

    CUSTOMERTABLE:
    PK - cust_id
    firstname
    lastname
    street
    city
    state
    postcode


    ORDERTABLE
    PK - order_id
    product_id
    prod_descrip
    prod_price

    I am trying to set them up in a relationship and am wondering if it's possible to add the cust_id as a foreign key in the ORDERTABLE? I can link up cust_id with order_id in a relationship but the cust_id doesn't move across as a foreign key like it does in Visio. Is this possible to do?

    Many thanks for your help!

    Yes, cust_id should be added as a field in the order table.
