Thats it! Works lika a charm now.

  OK... I'm not sure if this is your only problem, but I did spot a problem that would certainly prevent things from working.

In PHP a multiselect list must be named with brackets to work properly.

So I see in your code:
<select name="Zielmenue" size="10" multiple="multiple" id="Zielmenue">

When it would have to be:
<select name="Zielmenue[]" size="10" multiple="multiple" id="Zielmenue">

This is true in all php applications and all multiple select lists.  

Thank you Ray. You spotted the problem at once. When I said, I made no mistake, I actually meant that I followed the documentation for both extensions (dynamic dropdown and manage relational database) word by word. Unfortunately there was no hint about the square brackets!
Anyway, your expertise solved the problem. I hope that it will help others who might run into the same trap as I did.

As a suggestion: could you be kind enough adding this hint to your documentation, (maybe in the text of the screenshot I have attached?) because if you build this from scratch you might assume that this issue is taken care of by the extension(s). The more if in manage relational table there is an option to chose from a multi-select list. Afaik, Dreamweaver never supported select names with brackets. Might be mistaken, though.

Anyway, thank you for your help.
I am happy that this works now, because managing relational tables is one of the most useful extensions I have ever run into.

btw, the sample (students - courses) you put in the menus while applying it, is very helpful. This way, you won't mix up the tables you need to select.
