    Adding a Value Lists in existing database


      Hi All


      I am new to file maker and have come accross an issue that I can not resolve.


      I have a main contact and booking table with a PK of Booking ID


      I want to create a values list for cruise companies & the cruise companies ships.


      The idea is that if I choose the P&O as the cruise company I will only see P&O's ships.


      Here is the relationship that I have made between the tables. Is this the correct to make the above happen.

          When you define the value list, select "Use values from field:" where you can select the "ship name" to show the values. Then select "include only related values starting from" and select the relationship you want to there. It may depend on the layout that you want to show these values from, as I'm not sure if you're starting from the leftmost table occurence in your pic... allowing a popup for companies first, then show only related ship names for that selected company, or if your layout is showing a detail of the companies... but that's what you're looking for.
