[Phpmyadmin-devel] foreign key on external database

I'm new to php and phpmyadmin. I have a windows 2k Advanced Server running
IIS. I think I loaded MySql OK, & tried to load php & phpmyadmin. I don't
think those loaded properly. Would someone be willing to set it up and check
it out. I would pay for the help.

Art Butts.

Hi Isart,
good initiative! Are you thinking of implementing this in Relation View or
the Designer page or both?

On Relation View, we could think of a database drop-down, even if this can
pose a problem with too many databases -- but we already have this problem
at other places where we have such drop-down.
