your approach for this is not correct.

For one, to relate a product from the products table to the user, you should only store the productID in the users table, then use a join query to return the related info from the products table, for example:

SELECT users.*, products.*
FROM users
INNER JOIN Products ON users.productID = products.ProductID

however, this structure is very limiting, it is create a 1 to many relationship. it means that a user can only have 1 product, you would probably want any one user to have multiopple products.

for this you would need to create a many to many relationship using a linking table.

for exampl:

userID - primary key
userName - text

productID - primary key
productName - text

userProductID - primary Key
userProductUserID - relates to users.userID
userProductProductID - relates to products.productID

the join query to use would now be:

SELECT users.*, products.*
FROM users
INNER JOIN userProducts ON users.userID = userProducts.userProductsUerID
INNER JOIN products ON products.productID = userProducts.userProductsProductID
