A component walks into a bar....

The component asks the bartender via .NET remoting:
"Gimme a beer"
Bartender:
"What kind of beer?"
Component:
"Just give me all of them one by one and I'll drink the one I like."

The component asks the bartender via Web Services:
"Gimme a beer"
Bartender:
"What kind of beer?"
The component thinks a minute.
"I didn't know you'd have more than one. I just want a beer."
Bartender:
"What kind of beer?"
Component:
"A plain one."
Bartender:
"What's plain beer? How about a bud?"
Component:
"Umm.. ok."
The component tries to take the beer but it slips onto the floor and the glass breaks.
Bartender:
"What's wrong with you?"
Component:
"I got a slippery SoapException."

Hi! i'm trying by all means posible to get to someone that might be able to tell me how to use databinding for a winform app in the following scenario:
I have 2 tables which are related through a 3rd table (many to many relation). I need a form that shows me for table1, which values from table2 are 'adopted', and add/remove values according to my needs (of course, in table3 -the relation table-).
I'm sorry if this is not the place to ask, but if you are interested in helping me out, you can reach me here: xal1983 [at] gmail.com
I can give a more detailed explanation if needed.
Thanks, Andrés Villanueva
