I am totally new to Quickbase Administration. (our admin left the company) There is a lookup field that I need to change the names on. I have no idea where to even begin to find this. I have clicked on just about everything I can. HELP!!

Hi

Your lookup field will come from the "Parent" in the relationship. In the relationship display, you can find which parent element contributes to the lookup field in the child.


Click on the table's tab, then click "Settings" at the top left. In the page that follows, you'll find a link to the table's relationships.

I little caveat to this, is you need to be an 'Administrator' in the application.  

If, so, just right click on the field name in question.

Select "Edit the field properties for this field..."

Then you can change the title to the field.

 

This is the answer to your more immediate questions,  
There is a lookup field that I need to change the names on.
Once you get more comfortable you can start diving into more relationship.

Okay....looking at this, i found this:

Record PickerThe record picker is used when selecting records from a list. Choose the fields to display in the record picker for this table.
Record picker displays values from:
Column 1: Record ID# 
Column 2: Category                        
Preview record picker

When I click on Preview record picker, I can see the two values, just dont know how to modify them

If you are at the SLC Office, 
You should just drive down to Draper and come visit us and I can help you in person.
About 15 min down the road.
