There appears to a problem with "Help and Fill" lookups when using Win NT
and Runtime (7 or 8). My personal experience has been that it works on
some machines but not other supposidly identical machines. I had to modify
some forms to intercept the lookup call, display a form with the
appropriate lookup table and return the lookip value.
The lookup system works when using "Fill no Help" and also will fill in any
matching fields. I suspect display drivers.
A short term "fix" is to change to "Fill no Help" but you wil need to add a
lookup system to return to full functionality.
If the lookup tables are similar you may be able to use a generic lookup
form which interrogates the field properties to find the lookup table name
and opens the form with this table. I managed to get away with 3 similar
lookup forms for about 20 lookup fields.
