Hi,

I have a design requirement that must use a dropdown that displays, as an example, options red, blue, green, yellow in the dropdown. Instead of storing the color, I would like the dropdown to store, 1,2,3, or 4 depending on the color selected.

Does anyone have an ideas as to how this could be done? I have about 4o of these and some of them have up to 15 dropdown items.

Thanks very much.

Turns out that this is done through the code field. For some reason, noob that I am, I thought the answer (dropdown item) was stored. Instead, the code field is stored. So glad that this is the case.
