Summary

Not reading related table fields where the related table field is a derived from a drop-down list

Product

FileMaker Pro

Version

13

Operating system version

Mavericks OSX 10.9.1

Description of the issue

Building first database into day 10 and doing very well. If I have two tables
Table A                                     Table B

Table A) Normal edit Field.............. Table B) Field with Drop-down menu

Table A edit field is set to read Table B field with drop down menu
Table A does not read any field in Table B where a drop down menu has been used to enter a value.
Values in the drop-down menu are all text and correct.

I feel there is a bug in the drop-down field option preventing them to be read properly.

Steps to reproduce the problem

Table A is related to table B
Table A successfully reads edit fields from Table B
Table A field correctly is set to navigate to the correct Table B field
Nothing is showing in Table A field, even though Table B field is set to be read from Table A field

Expected result

Table B drop-down field selection to display in Table A edit field.

Actual result

Table A blank field

Exact text of any error message(s) that appear

None

Configuration information

One database with five related Tables. Table A is directly related to Table B and already correctly extracts information but only from Table B normal edit fields.

Workaround

None yet. (Unusual for me!)
