Thank you for your help....

Each and every relational database can depict many-to-many (m-n) relationships. This is no matter of Base. Simply create the usual three tables and two relations in your database. The type of relation has absolutely nothing to do with Base. Once you have implemented your m-n relation in your MySQL, Microsoft, Oracle, PostgreSQL, HSQLDB or whatever database (see status bar of your database document) you can make the m-n relation accessible through LibreOffice forms attached to an embedded Writer document or attached to arbitrary stand-alone documents. This makes no difference since the "form wizard" for embedded forms will not help you by any means.

There is a section of Base tutorials and Base examples on
