      Drop-downs

      Post

      I have FileMaker Pro 10 Advanced and need to create an "About" and a "Help" list.   I know how to do a Drop-down from a value list, but I need to know how to go to the table from the Drop-down.

       

      Can you help with this?

       

      Thanks.

          You can set up a script to display the desired table by having it switch to a layout for that table. Your script can check the contents of your drop down formatted field to determine whether to go to a "help" or "About" layout.

           

          Since you are using FMP 10, you can assign a script trigger that performs the script when the drop down formatted field is either exited or modified. Which options work best can depend on the exact format you set on your field, so I usually end up experimenting with both options to figure out what combination of value list format and script trigger works best for a given layout.
