Hi I just found something strange today. In FM6 if you created a value list using values from a related file's fields with 'Also Display value from' the second field, and then when you use a popup menu, when you selected a value, ONLY the first field's value is displayed. However in FM8 once selected, it displays BOTH field 1 and field 2.

In other words, lets say you have two fields that you select to be your value list. The first field is a person initials and the other one is the name. Okay if there are two names of Donald Duck and Mickey Mouse the popup list itself will display as

DD Donald Duck

MM Mickey Mouse

So in FM6 once you select the first choice, the field will show DD but in FM8 it will show as DD Donald Duck.

What gives?

Hi Duke. I think you are misunderstanding me. I want both values to display in the popup itself. However, when the choice is selected, in FM6 it only displays the first field value. But in FM8 it shows both fields again AFTER selected.
