Help-cannot figure our how to connect two databaes using tables

Post

I used Filemaker Pro 5.5 for many years and loved it (except for the last two) and now am attempting to create a pretty simple database with one database being "contacts" and another being "projects" for a construction company. I want the contact info to pull from "contacts" into the "project" database that I am tracking.

I have given the each "client" a number in the "contacts" database (it's indexed and unique to each client). I am beside myself how to connect the two? I know i am missing something simple? There wasn't the "tables" format in 5.5 and I keep getting "unrelated" table messages.

What am I doing wrong, this should be easy?
