Filemaker Pro Newb:  Drop Down Lists help!

Post

I'm a newb to Filemaker Pro, but mildly familiar with Oracle DB's, so it's not super-new.  

I'm doing the 30 day trial, and working on an application for my wife to track student development.

So I have two tables, Students and teachers.  

The students table has:

StudentID

TeacherID

Name

..etc.etc.etc.

The Teachers table has:

TeacherID

TeacherName

etc.etc.

So I want to be able to use a drop-down list of the teachers in the Students layout so you can edit the teacher assigned to the student.

It's getting it work is the problem!  I've tried to many ways, and it doesn't seem to work; I've setup the relationship between the tables, but can't do the entry correctly.

Can someone talk me through the steps it should be in the Inspector? 

Thanks!
