Making a text field (edit field) into a drop down list
I have a series of links on each record from another program (HyperCard) that I'm trying to convert over to Filemaker Pro Advanced. Each of some 40,755 cards (what HyperCard calls records) has a variable number of these links (Hypercard calls them buttons). I've solved the problem of getting all the information about the links out of each HyperCard record (card) into a text field in an individual record in a filemakder table. Is there a way to make this field into a drop down list globally, without individually going to each of the 40,755 records and doing it manually. That way each link could be selected and I could use it to navigate among the records.
Thanks for your help
