I'm used to this being done automatically with IP's wwDBLookupCombo.

Wouldn't the IB_LookupCombo be better to use in this case?

Wouldn't it be populated automatically?

Couldn't one link the text field of the parent table with the single field in the lookup

Or is IB_LookupCombo only suitable for linking an ID field with an ID field and displaying
the text of a different field in the lookup table?

Why did you not consider the use of the IB_LookupCombo?
