Hi Experts,

We have a table called "Users", that has fields: ID, Username, etc.
In another table, called "Daily Sheet Felling", the Field Username from table Users is being used as lookup list. Made through Lookup Wizard in Table Design View.
In table "Daily Sheet Felling" we do see a list of all the usernames.
However, we discovered that the User's ID is being stored in the table "Daily Sheet Felling" instead of the username. When we go in Design View of the table "Daily Sheet Felling" the datatype is set to Numbers instead of short text.

How can we create a lookup that returns the exact username instead of it's ID?
