Hi,
I'm working w/ Powerbuilder 10.5 and an Access DB.
I've put a dropdownlistbox on a window layout.  I want this listbox to hold all the distinct values in a column from the Access DB table I'm working with.  I've tried several different things that I would've used in VB.Net, but I haven't gotten anything to work yet. I've tried using AddItem and InsertItem in a loop and I've also tried an sql statement.  Any help is very appreciated.

thx,
Dave
