thanks for the reply. however, i was using the date / month as an example of a value list. what i saw on a video tutorial was a whole long selection of pre-made value lists available "from filemaker" that were available. its this long list of pre=made value lists that I'm taking about and am looking for.
any help in this regard ?
There are not such thing as pre made value list that FileMaker gives away. There are a bounce of start solution that comes along with FileMaker. If you go Menu > File and right at the top you can see that you can create a solution from one of the starter solutions
Otherwise I can recommend the free FileMaker Starting Point that have a lot of free resources
