I stumbled onto your nested set articles and I want to first thank you. The nested set has made dealing with our complicated hierarchies much easier for me here at work. Anyway-- We have to deal with the same nodes as part of multiple trees. I solved the problem by creating a Hierarchy table and linking that with the nested set table. Of course that led to a separate node list table, but that was easy enough.

NS table (NodeID, HierarchyID, leftside, rightside) Node table (NodeID, NodeName, Description, .... <other detail fields>) Hierarchy table(HierarchyID, Description)

I'm having a problem with coming up with query that results in only the immediate children of a given node. Could you offer some insight?
