I have to admit, I'll sidestep the PFC when I know I can do something with a
few lines of code on my own - but it still bugs me when I can't figure the PFC
way of doing something.

Here's the scenario. I have one column on my MASTER datawindow. The master
is an external source datawindow. The column is defined as a
DropDownDataWindow.

When the user selects a value from the DDDW column, I want to have my detail
datawindow retrieve based on that value.

Would the PFC Linkage service even be relevant in this scenario? If so, how
would it fire off based on an "itemchanged" DDDW column value? The MASTER is
never really retrieved, it's the DDDW column that has all the data.

I know it's a one liner in standard Powerscript (the way I went), but still...

Thanks in advance, Norm
