It's Been Forever, I Need Help Displaying Multiple Tables on a Form

Post

I've used Access to create a couple databases, nothing terribly complex, and would like to do the same with File Maker.  At the moment I'm working on a database for my company.  I'm working on displaying a contact management form.  I have one table for contacts with the contact ID, and then fields like first, last, etc.  And then I have another table for phones (since someone can have more than one phone) with phone_id, contact_id, phone type and phone #.  I have a relationship created between the contact ids in both tables.  So then on my contact form, how do I get it to display a field for the phone, so that I can input the phone types and phone numbers.  

Seriously this is like the most basic thing ever, and I can't believe I've forgotten how to do this.  Could someone walk me through in baby-steps, cause obviously I've forgotten something major, and I don't know what that is.  Thanks.
