I have a customer DB

I have a job DB which has a menu filed for customers. It also has a radio field for open or closed.

I have a invoice DB which will have 2 fields to connect it with a customer and a job.

After choosing the customer, I would like the job field to only show

"open jobs" for the customer previously choosen.

Any help is greatly appreciated. After seeing this, it should help me with a lot of future relationships.

Thanks in advance

You will have a relationship between your invoice and customer db's and a relationship between your invoice and job db's. The first relationship is based on customer ID and the second is based on job ID. When you select the customer from a menu, that will set the customer ID. Now the value list for the jobs is based on related records from the job relationship, just like your previous query about the active/inactive value list. However, this time, you don't need to do any calculated field tricks. Just pick the relationship to the job db, and the job ID field that you want to get the values from.
