Hi,

I have one table with plenty of contacts in it. In a second table I have record let's call it "person" where one of contact is assigned to task. Because of versatility I'm not using contact's names but ID of person instead. By using of popup list I can see names again.

Some of the contacts became inactive by the time and I don't want them see in the popup list anymore. So I made filtered list of contacts based on attribute "active". What I don't know yet is how to fix the fact that all tasks where was used now inactive person show only ID because isn't present in popup list.

I hope I expressed my problem clearly.

Thank you.

Use two fields, one for entry and one for display.

The display field can draw the name from a related table or store it locally with an auto-enter calculation. It should not be enterable.

The entry field can be the id field with the pop-up attached. It could also be a global with a script trigger that sets the id field if you wanted more control over the entry.

Place the display field on top of the entry field.
