I'll recap the function of the category system in Figure 10. The main form has an open record in Images . Matching with its id , the subform selects records from the ImageCategories pivot table based on the link = ImageCategories.ImageId .

The table control element contains a list box row in the subform record that shows the category names matching the CategoryId from ImageCategories . You can also use it to add new CategoryId s.

Although the form wizard relieves you of some effort, the second part of this workshop will show you that Base, like MS Access, can't solve all problems without requiring some knowledge of the SQL database programming languages. Further details and practical examples are available as PDF and OpenDocument files in the official Base handbook [2], which goes much further than the online help for the product.
