          In filemaker 11, there is no field/control setup... dialog. It has been replaced by a section of the data tab in the Inspector.


          When you place a field on the layout by dragging from the Field tool to the layout, you should get the specify field dialog which permits selecting a field. To select and/or create a value list, you bring up the inspector and click the data tab.
