Description of the issue

I have created a relation between the table [companies] and the table [persons]. Then I have defined the field [contactperson] in table [companies] as a lookup field looking up and importing data from the field [person ID] in the table [persons]. I would expect a drop down to be created in the targetfield, but nothing happens. Now I have tried to create a portal with a few person data fields from the table [persons] in the table [companies]. If i now enter a known valid person ID in the field [contactperson], the data shows up in the portal, so I would anticipate that the relation actually exists (may bee through the portal) but I can't figure out, why I then do not get any response (drop down or any other autofill mechanism) in the field [contactperson] , when I try to enter data in the field [contactperson]. Any suggetions out there
