      Anyone with experience with this ?

       

      I need some help with this .

       

      In my current situation  I have

       

      a)contacts table : with  fields for country , state and district

       

      b)districts list:  with fields  country, state and district

       

      c)contacts layout where i have made the drop down menus for country, state and district as  suggested in the demo. The value lists are filtering properly that is fine.

       

       

      Problem

      When I select a country , state and district  that SELECTIONS  remain the same for ALL my contact records  .  I need the selections to be stored  in each record in  fields for country , state and district  in the contacts table . I am not sure where my data entry is going.

       

       

       

      Please let me know how I can change  this .

       

       

      Thanks
