Hi all.

Having an issue with some CakePHP 1.3 stuff. I've read and read and read and 
haven't found my solution. I'm fairly new to Cake, so be nice. I'm trying to 
access a method from a different controller than the one I'm in and it's not 
letting me.

-location.php (model) - create the relationship
public $belongsTo = 'Address';

-locations_controller.php - grab all the locations (+ addresses for each 
location) and format the addresses
$locations = $this->Location->find('all');
$this->Location->Address->format(...);   // This line throws the error

public function format (...) { ... }

From my understanding, everything is defined correctly, but it thinks that I'm 
calling a query when it errors:

Warning (512): SQL Error: 1064: You have an error in your SQL syntax; check the 
manual that corresponds to your MySQL server version for the right syntax to 
use near 'format' at line 1 [CORE/cake/libs/model/datasources/dbo_source.php, 
line 681]

It thinks that the method "format()" is a query. Why?! I just want it to call 
that method. Please help!

Thanks in advance,
