Conditional Value Lists
I have just spent some time with Phil Caulkins "Conditional Value List Demo" and I'm still far from enlightenment.
I have also spend some time with the order/item example on FM's support section.
I can reproduce the Order/Menu example.
Now I'm trying to apply that lesson.
In the O/M example, the structure of the two tables was identical. Each table had fields of Type and Item.
In setting up, a relationship was established between the two Type fields.
Then the Order::Type field was set to be a drop down box, with values chosen from Menu::Type
Now I create a table Names with fields
Add a bunch of records to Names
Create another table, "Name" with the identical structure to names, but with no data in it.
Create a relationship between Name::Class and Names::Class
Open the default Layout for Name.
Select the Class field, set it to be a Popup box, taking it's values from Names::Class
THIS one doesn't work. Name::Class shows up with the little arrow as a dropdown box. But only has a single row with a single question
Comparing the setup of the Order/Menu setup to the Name/Names setup, I can't find what I've done differently.
