I have two tables one for people name and the other for countries.

People table have some fields like Name and Country_Number. Country table have two fields : Country_Number and Country_Name. I define Country table as a lookup table for People table. When I enter data into People table I want to make a combo box in my  for countries in my program instead of country number, how can I do that.
I use Delphi 3 Client/Server
Thanks in advance

Hi Motaz,

Go to the People table : double click -> you come in fields editor.
Click right mouse.

Choose add fields (select all)
Choose new field
choose type lookup and fill in the needed stuff (lookupsource, lookupfield, keyfield; etc)

Regards, Zif.

Did that mean I must not define country table as a lookup table ?

no,

you use two tables, one people, one country.

then you use two datasources pointing to one of each table.

then you use the country datasource as lookupsource in your newly created lookupfield.
