Title

Auto-populate a field with selections from a drop down menu value list

Post

     Hello, I'm looking for some information on if it is possible to create a situation where a field, called "Projects" can be populated with selections from a drop down menu value list or by a button. 

     Currently: "Projects" is a text field. 

     "Projectsvl" is the value list associated with it. There are over 100 options in the value list. 

     Projects is associated with a company/contact's profile, so we can see the contact and see what projects the contact has been/is associated with. 

     We need to be able to list more than one project in the text field. It needs to be clean and easy to use. 

     I have scripted a button called "Add Project" that

     Freeze Window
     Go to Field [Contacts::PROJECT]

     and when you hit the button it goes to the field and the drop down menu appears, but you can only choose one option. I need to be able to choose one project to populate the field and then when the next user hits the button subsequently, they can add another project without removing the first. 

     Any suggestions?

     Thanks, 
     Alisha
