Well, you can use the "SQL" tab to write a sql statement to do whatever you want, but no, the graphical interface doesn't appear to do that.

My question in detail is ... --> Does phpMyAdmin supports / allow / interface, editing data from "one to many" or ,"many to many" related tables, using a single phpMyAdmin interface( a single HTML page) I have a (primary) table and one of its fields(category) has one or many values , all these values are also listed in another(secondary) table. I would like to know if phpMyAdmin provides any interface such that those values from the secondary table appears(listed) (for example : as a Form) in the field of the primary table. PrimaryTable(X,Y,category,Z) pk:X SecondaryTable(category)pk:category I am not intending to enforce referential integrity. My question is just about the interfacing.
