I have a table named Table1
I want to give the USER the dropdown list options on a form to apply filters on columns Column1, Column2, Column3, Column4 .
When the user selects a value from the dropdown list of Column1, The related values should popup in the Column2. If the user selects a value from Column2 then show the related values in Column3, Like wise in Column4.
So after the user selects the values from the four dropdown lists i want the report to be shown.

How to do this in QUICKBASE ?

Note: If the user selects only one dropdown list and dont selects remaining three dropdown lists , then also i want to apply filter on that particular column only and show the report.

Did you try using 'dynamic rules' in form to try this? You can say something like 'when' column 1 is not equal to <blank>, taken action to show column 2 and so on to create multiple rules for other columns. I think, the report by default, can be set up to show whatever the user has picked.
I tried it...But that doesn't work....Basically what I want to do is something like to filter the table and show the table as a report either on the form or on the dashboard.
My task is something like this SQL Query " SELECT * FROM [Table1] where Col1=Value1, Col2=Value2, Col3= Value3, Col4=Value4 "

You make a reference to the word related:

 "The related values should popup in ..."

(1) Do you in fact have more than one table and relationships between Table 1 and these other tables?

(2) Where do the values for  Column1, Column2, Column3, Column4 come from that you want to show up in four cascading <select>s?

Hello Dan,

(1) I have only one table and no relationships with other tables.
(2) The values for  Column1, Column2, Column3, Column4 come from a single table
