      Why do I need to make a TO when I can create a relationship directly

      Post

      I am a newbie, so bear with me.

      Learning about relationships in Filemaker 12 and working in the relationship graph, I am told to add a table (which means a table occurrence) this creates a TO in addition to the two tables I want to make a relationship between.

      There is another button saying create a relationship, which creates a relationship  between two existing tables, without making a new table occurrnece.

      What is the difference between these two methodes?

      And, why would I like to add a table if I do not need it?

      Or, do I need to add a TO?

      I do really not see the purpose of the TO, but as I mentioned I am a newbie. 

      hope someone take some time to explain the difference of these two ways of creating relationsships

      Best regards, Jan
