I have a data table for an autoparts catalog, i need to filter data based on previous selections.

If user selects

Make = Nissan, only nissan models, should appear, and so son with the other selections. My question is, how can i achieve that? at this momment the only thing i can do is add or edit data, but not make a query like the one i need.

Now i can filter the data and find the part code, but how can i use that result to show the product attributes like photo, price, stock?

@Francisco_Guerrero It’s easy!

You just need to “dereference” on the [PartCode] that you have filtered to pull in photo, price, stock. It will look something like [PartCode].[Photo]. This would go in the Photo column AppFormula of your ending table.
