Hi!

When upgrading to Data Bridge, using Data Assist Wizard running the Product Administration Application, I unable to have the wizard pick up the ProductCategoryID column even though I selected the correct products table under the Database settings. I thought I needed this column in the admin pages to be available to enter the category for the relational table or do I run another wizard and use another way to do this?

Thank you!

did you select the option to have the table created for you?

the products table that will be created by the wizard does not include a category column

The idea is to use a linking table to create a many to many relationship for the categories so that a product can belong to multiple categories.

you would create a category table:
categories:
categoryID
categoryName

and a productcategories table:
productcategoryID - primary key
productcategoryCategoryID - relates to categories.categoryID
productcategoryProductID - relates to products.ProductID


and use the manage relational table behavior for assigning the categories.

see the "Managing Relational Tables in Data Bridge" tutorial on the data bridge support page:
