I want to be able to have a specific checkbox list appear based on what is entered in a field.

Ex. If the value entered in "Program" field is "Master of Arts in Art", then a check box appears that has listed:

Application

Official Transcript

Official GRE Scores

or if the value entered in "Program" field is "Master of Arts in Psychology", then a check box appears that lists:

Application

Official Transcripts

Recommendation Letter 1

Recommendation Letter 2

Recommendation Letter 3

Statement of Career Goals

and the list of programs that might be entered in the "program" field is multiple.

Can anyone get me on the right track?

One way using variable value lists:

Make a separate file to contain the value list items. It will have two fields, the key field will be Program (to match the Program in the other file), and the data field will be Applications, etc. Pair the keys to the values.

In the main file, make a relationship between the Program fields in both files. In the main file, create a value list "Use values from field:", then specify the file and use "Only related values:" with the new relationship.

Does this make sense?
