Hello,
I am in search of a way to have the Associated products allow Grouped Products to be assigned.
This is the background of the situation:

Right now.. i have the following categories.
Category Root
Assemblies

Assembly Sub Cat 1
Assembly 1

Assembly Sub Cat 2
Assembly 2
Assembly 3
Assembly 4

Modules
Modules Sub Cat 1
Module 1
Module 4

Modules Sub Cat 2
Module 3
Module 2

Parts
Parts Sub Cat 1
Part 1
Part 2
Part 3
Part 4

Parts Sub Cat 2
Part 5
Part 6
Part 7
Part 8

*This works beautifully, how i want it.

For “Product Association” is where I am running into a dead end.

The Simple Product is: Part with the Attribute of Part Set
-has cross sells to Parts, and upsells to Modules

The Group Product 1 is: Module with the Attribute of Module Set
-has cross sells to Modules, upsells to Assemblies, Associated products with Parts

The Group Product 2 is: Assembly with the Attribute of Assembly Set
-has cross sells to Assemblies, Trying to do Associated Products to Modules <--may need to hack with ‘related products to modules’

My goal was to:
1) have the Modules Associate the parts listing, which it does!!!
2) have the Assemblies Associate with the Modules listings, which it doesn’t, Associated Products display only simple products - not grouped products. <-- how can we fix this?

I am in search of a way to have the Associated products allow Grouped Products to be assigned, not just simple products.

If not possible, my plan is to create some evil hack where i make “related products” display exactly like associated products from [Assemblies to Modules], and then turn off that display in all other page types from the XML.

Thanks in advance,
~Josh
