Disable the option Single Column for the field(s) in the multibox and enable the Limit Drop-down to option and set it a N lines where N is any number larger than 0 (and smaller than the number of unique values of the field).

Add a list box for Ufc. Select a State in the State list box and in the Ufc list box you will see the respective Ufc values for that the State value you selected..

Enclosed is a file that contains two possible solutions.

1) Is a table box showing just two columns

2) Two Multicolumn list box one for State and the other for UFC , the UFC list box only shows whenever a state has been selected, hope that helps Sub2a

Sorry, I just read that you had PE.

solution 1:

Step 1: Create a list box on State, define it as not single column and arrange at top or wherever you want

Step 2: Create a list box based on Ufc , similiar define it as multi column (unckech single column) and arrange it at one side.

Step 3. Go to Properties on the Ufc list box -> Presentation and Layout -> Condition type GetSelectedCount(State)>0  , this will make the Ufc list box appear just whenever a State has been selected

Solution 2:

Just create a regular Table box with two columns , uncheck Caption and that's it

This how the two solutions would look like Sub2a
