Newbie: Relationships?


Hello all, first time poster here!

I know you guys probably get this all the time, and I'm sure I'll look like a newb and a fool for asking (that's okay!)... but I am in serious need of understanding relationships in FileMaker Pro 10.

I am attempting to produce a database for a company that handles cleaning for other businesses. I need to create a database that shows upcoming jobs for the company, containing the business location, frequency of work per location, and the total monthly bill.

From that database, I would like to be able to simply click on the business location (Example: Albertsons), and have it link to my Contacts database, where I can find contact info such as address, phone number, etc.

I have been trying to read up on tutorials on relationships, and even broke down and watched some Youtube videos, but I just can't figure it out. If someone could walk me through this in an easy-to-understand-for-a-total-newbie way... I would be INSANELY appreciative!

Thank you!!



(I am using FileMaker Pro 10, on Windows XP)
