Displaying all values with same name in a pop-up menu from a relationship

Post

The fastest way to see this in action, rather than explaining my specific configuration as it behaves similarly, is to create New from Starter Solution…-->Invoices. Create two customers with the same name (e.g. John Smith) and then switch to Invoices and select John Smith from the Bill To: pop-up. You will only see one John Smith listed. How does one force FileMaker to display all values from a pop-up even if said values have the same name? In this case, that pop-up for Bill To: is being populated by a unique ID number and then the name. Why should it care, or know for that matter, if the names are identical. Shouldn't it just be concerned with displaying all names that have a unique ID regardless of similarity in name?
