FWIW, the product name is FileMaker Pro Advanced 10.
What you describe is not a bug with the program. There may be some issues with either your FileMaker Pro installation, your files, or both.
If you would like to send a sample file to david at ulearnit dot com dot au, I can have a look at the file for you.
A new uncommitted record has no index from which to establish a relation that would make it possible for related values to be displayed.
Create and commit the new record, including whatever data is required for your value list.
Thank you for your correction. I am afraid I deal with too many programs in my consulting job. I certainly appreciate your offer. The problem does appear to happen in one instance of the file that was moved to another computer. All now appears to be well. Thank you for your professional response.
