      Narrowing down value lists

      Post

      I'm trying to build a database for archival records.

       

      Each archival document comes from a file in an archive.  I will be using many different archives, which each contain many different files.

       

      All the documents will be entered into a standard "Document" form.

       

      When I create each new "Document" record, I'd like to input an Archive (from a pull down menu) and then input the file information via another pulldown list which will show only those files in that particular archive.  

       

      How do I do this?

          Howdy Raider,

           

          This topic has been covered many times on the forum already...but you need to know the words to search for.

           

          Do a search in this forum for "Conditional Value List". 

          The values available in the second field's value list are 'conditional' based on the value of the first field.
