Dynamic Drop Down form

Question!

Can I reference two Category IDs in one field in my database to reference two rows in another table?

Ex: FinishGroupID = 2,4 this will populate another drop down menu with the content from my PortsGroupID fields row 2 & 4

no, this is what is called a many to many relationship.

to create a many to many relationship, you need to use a linking table.

Is there a tutorial for that?

no, but your initial question and the details you provide in the private message section kind of conflict with each other.

to accomplish what you are trying to do will take some fudging with the recordsets, and using concat() to concatenate the two id's. If you need help in setting this up, we can help through a premiere support appointment.
