Valid Value

I have created two databases - one customer dbase, the other contact dbase. I have defined their relationship. On the contact dbase I would like to have the "company" field use the values in the Company dbase. I thought I did everything correctly by defining the relationship and defining the values. The company names do appear in a pop-up list, but I am unable to select one. If I try, the error message "This field cannot be modified until "Company" is given a valid value" appears. Any suggestions?

Thanks,

Mimnull

You have probably created a circular reference. You don't need a relationship to use a value list from another file. Try the third radio button, "use value list from another file". Also, I would not use Company Name as the key field in a relationship, us a company ID number. -bd
