possible to use 1 table instead of 2?

possible to use 1 table instead of 2?

i have a database table that has color/size/qty.
so example records would be:

red 2 9
red 4 9
red 6 9
blue 2 9
blue 4 9
blue 6 9

I want to setup the dynamic dropdowns.
the first selection would be the COLOR
the 2nd selection (dependent on the first) would be size

however because its 1 table, not 2, i seem to be having issues.
is there anyway to get this to work?
i love this tool but need to get it to work from 1 table.

the key is in the way you create your recordsets.

set the parent recordset to return the colors:

SELECT color FROM Tablename

the child recordset will return the colors and sizes:
SELECT color, size FROM Tablename

create the parent select list to use the color column of the parent recordset as both the label and the value.

then add the Dynamic Array behavior. The Value of the parent select list is what is used to match on the Parent ID setting of the Create Dynamic array. Set the Dynamic array to use the child recordset, Set the Parent id to Color, set the Child ID to Size and the Child label to size
