    Below are 3 tables that I've created in my database:

    - candidateID (primary key)
    - Term
    - CandidateName

    "VOTE" Table Fields
    - Candidate ID {indexed as Yes (duplicates OK)}
    - ShareholderID

    - ShareholderID (primary key)
    - LastName
    - FirstName
    - Address1
    - Address2
    - City
    - Province
    - PostalCode

    I'm trying to create a one-to-many relationships between the CANDIDATE table to the VOTE table but it's showing up as one-to-one.

    Any suggestions.

    I'm not sure what purpose the Vote table has unless it has additional fields you're not mentioning. Without that table, the Shareholder table simply links right to the Candidate table.

    I agree with dreamboat. Your one-to-one is because you have the shareholderID in the vote table also. You need to analyxe your design a bit I think. If you want to keep the vote table don't relate the candidate table to it. Since the canndidates are fixed values and aren't going to change just use that table as a dropdown for a list of candidates in a form. After the form is filled in and the vote is entered only the ID from the candidate table is put into the vote table along with the ID for the shareholder.

    Need some help with the database set up. What I'm trying to do is to set up a database which would enable me to record proxy votes.

    Each shareholder has to select a maximum of three candidates for each term. There are three terms in all and for each term there is a different list of candidates the shareholder can choose from.

    What would be the best way to go about doing that.
