It's a very typical use in database applications so I figure this feature might be already in existence in U++. Example:

Table: account
id  code  name ...
1   1001  cash
2   1002  bank deposit

Table: entry:

id    account_id  ....
1      1 (cash)
2      2 (bank)
3      1 (cash)

In the user interface, it will be ideal if account can be picked from a combo (with items such as [1001] cash / [1002] bank deposit]. Then the end user can pick an account from the dropdown list of a combobox, and when saved, the corresponding account_id is actually store in the entry table.

Is there such a control in Upp? Or how do you typical implement this?

There are several ways. When editing to fill in the table drop-down list from another table.

But to recommend something specific, you need to describe in detail what has been done.
