this is the formula you also gave me remember this? it only shows one column in the view I want the dialog list to contain col 1 and col 2 of the view here it is

lutype:="Notes":"NoCache";
db:=@DbName;
View:="AR";
col:=1;

tmpkey:=@Unique(@Explode(@Text(@DbColumn(lutype;db;view;col));" "));
@If(@IsError(tmpkey);"No Entries in View";tmpkey)

then in the view, append both Ac name and Ac no like

Ac name+" "+@Text(Ac no)

and this will work for you.

it works!! it is possible that it displays 2 columns but when I select the record it will only display the acct no alone?.....this is how it goes when I click on the dialog list it will display 2 columns when I select the data I want it will only display the acct no in the field ....do u get it? or it is really impossible to be done?...

Insteaad of using a dialog list, use a picklist.  Interface is much nicer, does exactly what you want.
