Hi Craig,

There's an example of doing something like this, in this blog LiveCycle Blog: Mehrstufige Dropdown-Liste//Multilevel dropdown list

The best way might depend on what format the data is in that you are planning to use.  If is it in an XML format then there are other ways that could be easier.

Regards

Bruce
