[EP-tech] Re: load values in field B based on what user selects in Field A



Hi Adam

I am  setting up a workflow to store records relating to research impacts.  

I've got 2 fields:  'broad impact' that has a list of values listed in a namedset

e.g.
Health - wellbeing - welfare
Society - culture - creativity
Business - innovation - economy
Public policy - governance - services
Heritage - environment
Education - formal / informal

and 'defined impact' should has a subsequent list of related terms to pick from that are linked to each 'broad' category

I'm just getting to grips with eprints myself and haven't dabbled with the subject tree yet.  But that hierarchical tree structure sounds like it could be the solution.  

Thanks
Mick

Hi Mick

	If you need to force field 1 to take a value depending on field2, then you may want a subject tree rather than two namedsets.  I would be interested in hearing more about the use-case you're trying to solve here.
