In this example, we show you how you can have a double layer conditional value list. That is to say that we have one value list that determines what is available in a second value list. Then the second value list data option determines what is in the third value list.

An example file can be downloaded by clicking (here)

So we have a setup where you choose a team, then a position and finally a player. The value list options are filtered based upon what choices you make. This feature uses a combination of relationships and value list settings.

We created a movie on this example and uploaded it to YouTube. CLICK HERE!
