    Selecting DropDown for desired result

    Hi,

    I have a file that I need some help on.
    I'm trying to use a Popover with a Portal.
    In the portal I have 3 Drop Downs and 1 edit box. For simplicity I have them named "Product", "L", "W", and "D". (The fields except for "Product" are numeric.)
    What I'm attempting to do is being able to select one of the three drop downs and have the remaining drop downs repopulate.
    Then when you select another drop down it will only show the result of the first selection. When you select the last drop down it too will be repopulate from the previous selection.
    The end result will be the Edit box showing the "Product".
    I have a script for each named field. But, when I run them they do not "Filter!".

    Thanks
    Charles

    What you'll need to research on the forums is "Dwindling Value List" and/or "Conditional Value List". There are plenty of sample files available.
