Create Sub "tables"

Thanks in advance for helping the newbie figure this out....

I'm an MS Access person, so the help this group has offered me with FileMaker is absolutely appreciated!


I have one table that contains information on presentations for a conference. I've created a layout that simply displays this info (i.e., name of presentation, description, etc.). I have another table that contains each timeslot at the conference we are organizing (i.e., Monday, 9-10am, Monday 10:15-11:15am, etc.). I have another table that contains presenters' names and info (i.e., John Jones, University of Carolina).


I have two goals:

1) have a field in the presentations layout that selects a timeslot and shows that info. Ideally, doing so would prevent another presentation from 'grabbing' the same timeslot.


2) I will have up to five presenters per presentation, so I'd like to display 1-5 names on the presentation layout.


I've attached a very rough picture of my goal. If there are multiple presenters, this section would grow accordingly.
