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
