Check out the module "References". It allows you to create a field where you can reference on other content types and nodes.


In addition, you might also want to take a look at the module Relation which looks to have a brighter future in terms of active maintenance and integration with other Drupal contribs. Another module that will come handy is Rules.

For both modules there are good introductory screencasts available by Johan Falk on http://dev.nodeone.se/sv


I discuss some of the different options available here: http://drupal.org/node/1293792#comment-5275780

This discussion is particularly relevant if you care about back-references. For your use case, perhaps references & cnr would give the best user experience.


Using node_references cck module we can achive this. In manage fields need to create a new field and select the type node reference and the parent type to be referenced
