Binding a form to multiple data sources

Question:
I am trying to bind a form to multiple tables in a session. If I drag and drop an attribute from a single table into my form, all is well. If I drag and drop an attribute from a second table, my form will ask me if I wish to override the default table with the table from which the second attribute was dragged and dropped.

How can I structure a data source property so that I can have objects bound to multiple tables in a session?

Answer:
There is a one-to-one relationship between a container, which includes a form, and a table.

If you want to use more than one table in a physical form, you must add an embedded form to handle the secondary table access and use the appropriate Link... properties to link the two tables in the physical form.
