I have a question regarding the relationship between accounts and contacts.

There's a default relation called "accounts_contacts" defined to be "many-to-many".
  • Seen from the account side: Every account has a sub-panel full of contacts. So far so good.
  • Seen from the contact side: Every contact has one field called "Account Name". That's odd.
Looking at this the relationship between accounts and contacts seems to be "one-to-many". How does that fit?

The question: How can I define a contact related to multiple accounts and how will it be displayed?

Thanks, Christian
