I made a post yesterday
here. After many hours, a severe headache, and some tylenol I have decided to try and see if I can get some help on this many-to-many relationship that I was suggested to try and use. I decided to define my tables a little better to hopefully provide you guys with some more and clearer information. Here is a screenshot:
How can I accomplish this with either a one-to-many or a many-to-many relationship table?

Something like this what you are after?

No, something like this:
Then you only put computer information into the computer table. You only put printer information into the printer table. The relationship table defines if it's a default wristband, hoozymawatchit or anything else. Then, the ComputerPrinter table brings them all together. This way you can get listings any way you want them.
I will tell you, the one wrinkle is, if you want to output printers across the page for each computer, you'll need to use a type of query called a pivot. I leave that to you for additional homework.
