    Creating a value list based on a layout.


      I've created a layout titled Searchfields, which shows records from my master file

      The fields I have placed on this layout are:

      First Name

      Last Name

      Phone 1

      Phone 2




      I've created the following fields in my DB file

      _search_value is a global text field (to be used in the next step after I get this dropdown to work)

      _search_list is a Calculation, Indexed field FieldNames ( Get ( FileName ) ; "Searchfields" )

      _search_field is a global text field


      I've created a value list search_names using values from the -search_list field referenced above.


      When I add the _search_field to ANY layout (the layout is based on the same table as the _search_list field), when I click on the arrow for the dropdown box..I get a ?


      I am trying to emulate the action on the attached file.
