> I would like to limit the data in a table field to the value of a field in another table. I have done this by using a seek() in the field validation. Is there a better way of doing this. If I edit the first table without the lookup table open, I get an error. Thanks.

Hello Richard,

I often give my users a combobox with lookup values. If there is a lot of lookup data, then i prever to use a lisbox or a grid on a picklist form that returns the value that is needed.
