Hi there, sounds like a few questions in there.

i want Department and drop down in some other Screen. also i want Subject as drop down in some other Scren

You’ll want to create a table for each type of drop down. So in addition to your main table, you’ll need to make a table called “departments” and another called “subjects”.

Then, you’ll format the “subjects” column in your main table as a Rowling that points to the subjects table.

It depends on what you’re trying to do. In a normal database, each row in the subjects table would need a unique iD that could never ever change, and you’d enter that into your subjects column so that you could run a query on the subjects table later.

In Honeycode, when a column is formatted as a row link, the entire row of data is passed into the cell, making it really easy to pull values out of it. Hope that helps.
