Do these value lists use custom values or values from a field in a table?
Are they conditional value lists that rely on a relationship to determine what values appear in the value list?
These lists use custom values. The original custom values lists were copied over when the duplicate was made, but appear to have vanished as well.
I do not believe that any vlaue lists are conditional or have any relationships established.
Assuming that you do not have two copies of the database and aren't re-opening the original each time (this has been encountered more often than you might think here in the forum, so make sure)...
I'd run a recover on the file to see if it might be damaged.
How did you create the new copy of this file?
Oh boy... maybe I did that.
I right clicked, hit "copy" then pasted. The copy was renamed and I started modifying.
My searches in the forums were focused on value lists and missing data, so I could have easily missed this as an option.
I think you helped me solve the issue! I realized that I should have cloned the original database rather than saving a copy. I've now done that and am copy and pasting over the revamped layouts from the copy and updating the value fields as needed. Thank you for helping to put me on the right track.

If the file is open at the time you do this, the copied file can be damaged.
