    dependent drop down menu stores IDs rather than values

    Level 1
      Hi!

      I still have some trouble concerning dependent drop down menus, that leave me rather puzzled...

      I use the insert record wizard and create a form that has two select tags. Both are menus, once for category the other one for a subcategory. Both are dynamic getting their labels and values from a table in the same mysql database each. If I choose dependent drop down from the addt menu the two select tags are picked up but the dependent drop down never works.

      If I use the dependent drop down wizard, I get two extra menus underneath the already existing form and that dependent drop down menu does work. I can then copy the two select atgs and replace the one in the original form from the insert record wizard.

      BUT:

      The dependent drop down menu from the dependent drop down wizard does insert only the primary IDs into the table and not the values.

      Is there a way to have a drop down menu that does store the values and not the IDs?

      Cheers Juergen
