table relations

I have a problem setting up specific table relations.

 

I have 3 tables: value entries, item category, product group

Following data as an example:

 

Item categories:

1: wooden beams (related product groups “softwood” and “hardwood”)
2: wooden boards (related product groups “softwood” and “hardwood” - the same!)

 

In my table value entries I have both fields “item category” and “product group”.

 

I didn’t find a way to set up relations like this:
Item category -> product group 1:n
Product group -> Item category n:m
value entries -> product group 1:n
value entries -> item category 1:n

 

Does someone have an idea how it might work?

Re: table relations

Hi @acadonhme,

 

If you have the dimensions [Item Category] and [Product Group], you don't need to repeat them in the [Value Entry]. I think the relationship should be like below.

One category has many groups, the groups are in the [Value entry]. Please refer to the snapshot below.

Re: table relations

Hi @acadonhme,

 

Please share a sample that we can download or copy. Don't share anything private.

Just see from your description, there could be some loops. Maybe you need to adjust your model.
