I'm assuming you mean from the value lists? my idea would be to create another autopopulated field in the database called 'details' and have all of the information in this single field, that way you can use that for the drop down, only one field but it will display all of the information
Its using values from field rather than a value list. The fields are from an associated table.
I see your point, but is there a way to concatenate the already existing fields rather than needing to create an additional field that simply replicates data?
You'll need to use the calcualtion field. Get used to having to do that in FileMaker. Many cases where you would not need this to perform a calculation in other software such as Visual Basic or MS Access, require such calculation fields in FileMaker.
Nature of the beast, I'm afraid--though recently added features in FileMaker have reduced the need in a few areas...
OK, yes mate, you make a good point.
Thanks for the advice.
