Making a text field (edit field) into a drop down list

Post

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
