Hello there,

Does anyone know how to code a pull down from a value list with the selected option being whatever is already in the field?

i.e. if the field has 'B' in it and when the page is viewed of that record the pulldown shows 'B' selected from it and if it's changed to 'D' then 'D' will appear selected in the pulldown the next time the page is accessed.

Thaks in advance Antz.......UK.......

Doesn't this kind of defeat the purpose of a pulldown menu, if it only shows what is already in the field? If the field is blank, you have the choice of blank and end up typing in the value. How is this used?

Anyway, create a self relationship based upon record no. matching record no. (create one, auto entered), define the value list using the entry field and this relationship.

If I understand correctly I am using:

Field: typtz

List: typtzwebentry

<SELECT name="typtz" size="1">

<option> [FMP-Field: typtz]

<option> -----------------------------------------------------

[FMP-valuelist:typtzwebentry,list=typtzwebentry]

<OPTION> [FMP-valuelistitem] [/FMP-valuelist]

</SELECT>
