How do you dynamically populate a list?

Hello! Can anybody tell me how to fill a drop down list or combo box dynamically? For example, I want to grab the unique values of a database (error_source), and populate a drop down list with those unique values. This way I won't have to constantly be updating the static entry list every time one changes.

Thanks for the help!

    Hi Sara,

    have you tried the dynamic entry list? If not open the properties of your drop-down-list select the entry list tab. Then choose dynamic another popup appears. In this popup you have to select your system (your database or another data source), then you can select table. Now choose output under the output port. Then you can assign for the output port a value (this is the key) and a text (the text is displayed in the drop down).

    If you have any problems with the entry list then this following wiki entry can help:
