Yes, as I stated in the original post, the connection action does work because I can get it to populate a separate list control in my form. I have also tested it in the Connection Action setup and it returns all the items I expect.
Changing the target column to All Rows does not work; it’s adding one row to the table for every item returned by the connection action.
I’m using the “Row is added” behavior because I want the user to add a row and have the connection action populate the drop-down column with all items that are returned.
Here’s a screenshot showing my table and a test drop-down. The drop-down column in the table, called Reason Code, is not being populated with anything but the table ended up with 28 rows in it (not what I want). The test drop-down to the left *is* being populated with the 28 items I want. http://imgur.com/JMhNU.png
