Changing value list used for a field depending on the content of another field.

Post

Hello all,

 

I am using FP10 on osx 10.4

 

I am setting up a filemaker layout in which employees have to enter products.

 

I would like to restrict the field where the product type should be selected (dropdown - value list) based on the field where the employee has selected the brand.

 

Simple car example: employee selects BMW and can then only choose 1 series, 3 series, 5 series etc...

 

If he was to select Merc then he could only select A-class B-class C-class ....

 

I think this would mean that the value list used in the "type" field will have to change if the "brand" field is selected.

 

Is this possible in FP10? How do i do this? Are there any other options? 

 

I must say that i am only starting out with filemaker...
