To populate a list or combo box, I have been using single field tables.
Seems like it should be possible to use a single table for more than one
list or combo box. (The SQL statement for selecting a field for a list
or combo box is: SELECT "field name" FROM "table name".) Has anyone
tried this before? Any problems doing this?
In a combo box you "always" want:
SELECT DISTINCT "Field" FROM "Table" ORDER BY "Field"
In a list box you "always" want:
SELECT "Field or Concatenation", "Primary Key"
ORDER BY "Field or Concatenation"
Data field=The form's foreign key
[Example] Relations reflected by list boxes in forms
