bibliography database - author field question

Post

Hi,

 

I have a very basic question (new user) - I am trying to build a bibliographic/reference database and I can't work out how to have an author field that allows you to pick more than one author other than a checkbox which just doesn't work (as hundreds of authors) - is there any way this is possible or do I have to have seperate fields for first, second etc authors? In ms access it is possible to do this by having a seperate table of authors and then forming a relationship that allows one to pick multiple authors from the main table form - is there any equivilant in filemaker?

 

If seperate fields are necessary for each author is there any way to have a search/display form that will allow people to search all the author fields with the one entry?

 

thanks for any help
