    Sunil Kenth



      I would like to know if it is possible to customise the options i have available to select in a list box?


      I have a standard list box in my application which displays information from a field in my dataset, however i would like to change some of the values, this is what i have in my dataset:



      Baby Plan

      Merchandise Sales



      Web Sales

      Wes Sales



      I would like to display:


      Order                    Description                    Mapping to values in dataset

      1.                           Store Merch                     Merchandise Sales

      2.                           BPlan                                BPlan

      3.                           WES/SHD                       SHD & Wes Sales

      4.                           Direct in Store                 BPlan + WES

              Hi Sunil,


              Thanks for the response.  I ended up creating several additional fields based on the original field and then using if statements to group the values together.  I then had to play around with border and shadows on the front end to make it look like one selection box.
