Portfolio with DataAssist

Portfolio with DataAssist

I've been trying to figure out how to work with the relational table feature in DataAssist, and I can't seem to be getting the logic behind it, please note that i know what relational table is, but I'm trying to figure how to make it work with DataAssist, at least for a certain project I'm working on.
I have a portfolio, where each client will have his own photo gallery, I have an insert page that I created previously, with the details of the client, and an upload box that's working well, a jquery option to add more upload fields to upload multiple images, i have the tables ready, a client table, and an uploads table, and a relational table...
now how can i make this display results, and update and insert into the database using DataAssist.
A detailed explanation would be appreciated :)

i dont believe you need a relational table for this since the uploaded photo will only be associated with one user.

you would only use a relational table to create a many to many relationship.

in this case though, you are creating a one (user) to many (photos) relationship

the photos table should contain a foreign key column that relates to the user through the user Primary key column value.

When the images are uploaded, the users ID is stored in the foreign key column, and the photo name is stored in the photo column.

to display only the photos for a particular user, filter the recordset on the foriegn key column.

Thanks Jason!
I tried that already and ran into problem with the nested loop, I can't create nested loops for that matter when displaying the images...I think I'll code that my own it's easy

Thanks for the help!

Cheers and happy new year
