    drop down list appears when certain county is selected


    hello

    if the user of my database selectes a county for example bedfordshire how could i get it so that then in the town column it would display a drop down list with only the towns in that county.

    thanks

    Baldy-Cascading Combos

    Note that this doesn't work too well on continuous or datasheet forms.
