Parent Child relation is sharepoint list
Hello,I am trying to build a list. There are two parts of information that i am trying to capture. The first column is Region and when the user picks that the second column is filtered and only the countries that exist in the region are displayed. Is there a way to achieve this in a sharepoint list?Thanks,KalluMama

Unfortunately there is no way to do what you want with an out of the box SharePoint list.

You can definitely create parent-child relationships between lists. Basically using the concept of look-up columns and event handlers you can create this relationship. Refer this articlehttp://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/cc438798.aspxIt is dealing with exact scenario what you are askingSundar Narasiman
