Conditional Dropdown Error

    Everything was working fine but now I'm getting an error. The table has not had any changes in months so it is weird how the conditional drop-down has stopped working.

    Can you post a clearer shot of the pop up purple message?

    Here it is. The weird thing is System Sting Type (P) has a value and I have many of these drop downs currently working.

    Is that [System String Type (P)] field visible on the form?

    Yes it is I just moved it right next to the drop down.

    Does it fail on all records or just 1 record.  ie,  is the failure "data dependant

    All records, when I go back to old record to try an edit the field it has the current option in red. It's working of a relationship string called "System String Type" maybe it is safer to go with a number.

    It's always safer to based the CDD on [Related Parent] (typically a numeric field), than a text field.

    Very weird I duplicated the field and the duplicate works

    The issue was the field existed in two spots and was throwing an error because of both of them having the same ID on the elements.

    So the field on which CDD was based the field was on the form twice.  so when that happens the "last" appearance of the duplicate field will win and it would have been blank.
