Joining objects in tablemaker

I'm wondering if it's possible to join two objects using a common key
tablemaker, similar to joining two tables in a relational database.

For example, let's say I have a Locus, and that Locus refers to
Positional Candidates, which in turn contain Phenotypes.  Is it possible
in tablemaker to display the loci (from the Locus objects) and the
associated Phenotypes (from the Positional Candidate objects) in the
same table by somehow following the reference from a Locus object to the
appropriate Positional Candidate objects?

I haven't found a way to do this, and the documentation at acedb.org is
spotty on the issue, so I'm guessing that it's impossible, but I wanted
to verify this with the experts here before giving up.

Thanks in advance
