I need a brainstorming session! I need to link Buyers and Sellers together. For example, a Seller (Company A) will only link to one other record -- the Buyer's record (Company B). However, the Buyer's record may link to several Sellers' records. Any ideas out there?

I think this might work -- let me talk this out here.
Buyer works for ABC Company. Buyer buys items from 3 companies: Zebra Mfg., Yellow Horse Iron, and Black Dog Steel. I could link these 3 companies as Contacts TO ABC Company. But I could NOT link another contact to Zebra Mfg., Yellow Horse Iron, and Black Dog Steel. Right?

I tried it, and no that won't work. When I linked the Seller with the Buyer it changed the Seller's company name to the Buyer's Company Name, and they are two separate entities.
If you think of anything else, I'll certainly try it!

You need to "associate" rather than "link" the contact (at a different company).
Two ways to do it.
Hope this helps.
