Thank you Jason for the screen shots.
I did change the Populate list from Array and I am not seeing the child options populate in the list. I did however notice that even though the "child" dropdown is blank, when I select a size in the "parent" list, it does populate the child dropdown to reflect the id that is associated with that size i.e. choose "Medium" in the "parent" and the "child" dropdown will populate "Beige" which is the same id # in my "child" database table.
The steps in the Getting Started with Dynamic Dropdowns make sense and I go through them to a T, however, my end result obviously is not accurate.
Is there any possibility that my tables are not set up correctly? I'm in a crunch on this with our client and appreciate your help!
