Is your calculation non stored calculation? Relationship are based on their indexing and non stored calculation do not have indexing.
Let's start over:
i simply want to bring a field and it's data over into another table.
i am not really relating anything! Just want to view the data there!
So i set up a simple relationship:
Both tables relate a global number field. i simply put the No 1 in both fields which established relation.
my text field with data now shows up and i select and insert it into my layout. But no data!! Not as a edit box!! i can create a value list from that text field i want and when i format the field to a popup menu THEN my data appears. but i want my data to appear just in a edit box field.
i GOT THIS SIMPLICITY TO WORK AND NOW UPGRADING IT.
