I know this is probably very easy but I am missing something here. What I would like is to have a drop down on my layout that draws its data from a value list. When the user selects one item from the list, a find would immediately occur using the criteria the user chose as the find criteria in Field A.

Can someone assist me in accomplishing this?

Thanks,

Mark

Another way to do it, is to have a Value List attached to a Global Field (lets call it gText) And a Button Next to the gText that performs a script.

The value list can be all the values of Field A (from your example).

You also need a relationship (Lets call it Lookup). The relationship is from gText to Field A in the same table.

The User selects a value for gText then clicks the button

the script ;

GotoRelatedRecord(show, Lookup)

GotoLayout (your layout)

this should work
