Conditional Value List from a related table

Hello all,

I've done this before and have modeled my recent success, but am pulling what little hair I have out trying to get this to work.  Simply stated, in one table [Main], I have a field called region_code.  In that same table I have field called status.  I'm trying to pull a value list in another related table based that only gives me region_code(s) that have a status of "active".


I've created a 2nd occurrence of the [Main] table called Main.Active and I've created a global field called var_active with the value "Active" in the [Main] table.  I've set up a relationship between the two occurrences to match the global variable to the status.

MAIN::status = MAIN.Active::var_active


I have a list called Active Regions.  I've tried every iteration of creating the list pointing it region_code in both tables, and using show only related from a second table  and am stuck.  It's showing all of the regions, no regions, 1 region but nothing limited by the active field.


Please help.
