- Creating a Previous Values Lookup
/documentation/pages/Guides/Desktop/Design/Data/DBF/Creating a Previous Values Lookup.xml
The Previous Values lookup is a great way to dynamically build a choice list from values that have already been entered.
In a table containing product information, you might define a Product type field with a Previous Values lookup. Since the number of product types is limited, once you enter several product records, you can select the value from the list instead of typing it in.
Many parameters available with the other lookup styles are available for use with a Previous Values lookup, including the ability to display lookup choices in a drop-down list box.
If you selected "Conditional Table Lookup", optionally, un-check Display as Drop-down list box if you would like the choices to appear instead in a pop-up dialog box. Refer to Comparing Drop-down Lists and Popup Dialogs.

- Editing a Layout Table Report
/documentation/pages/Guides/Report/Layout Table Reports/Editing a Layout Table Report.xml
Editing a Layout Table Report is somewhat different from editing a Free Form Report, although many operations, such as adding a field to the report, are the same for the two types of report. For general information about Free Form reports, see Report Topics.
When editing a Layout Table Report, however, you must think in terms of rows and columns and regions, as though you were working in a spreadsheet or HTML table — which, in fact, may be your ultimate targets for the report.
