I am lightly experienced with databases but Most of my experience is with MS Works and Excel. Have been using Libre for several years and am trying to build a simple database to archive the names and storage details of documents, books, photos, etc. Have built a master table for data input and smaller tables for drop down list boxes. Can't figure out the process of getting the relationships and such so that the table data shows when I click on the drop down button. Would anyone be interested in working with me by phone or email? Thanks. John Owens. Knoxville TN. 417 231 3600

@JohnO-TN Posting you phone number like you did is only asking for a lot of spam calling. I would delete it immediately.

Your question is best answered by referring you to the documentation on Base. Your question is not exactly clear as to whether you want to be able to display records based upon a list box selection (search forum for table filtering) or to use list boxes to enter data into records (Base documentation - Forms). Relationships can be found in the Tables section of the docs.
