View Index? I'm not sure if this is what you mean but double click the field, and choose auto complete using previously entered values, or if you want the values to be coming from a value list, choose drop-down list, choose your value list, and choose auto complete using values from value list.

If you go to (insert/from index) the drop down box displays a list of previously used text, this is what I wish to edit I have previously used upper case and would like to change some of the text to lower case. It's just a pain having to re-type everything in lower case especially in long sentences.

Thank you for your reply but not the right answer is was looking for. :D

Index depends on the field's contents, so you will need to change the contents before you will see a change in index.

You can script a replace of the field's contents, using the Lower() or Proper() functions. Make sure you have a backup before you try this, since there's no undo.

Another option is to define a calculation field (result is text) =

Lower ( yourfield )

If you are happy with the result, change the calculation field into a text field, then delete the original field.
