Hi, I am trying to make the list field more readable for the client when he is entering related products.

The trouble occurs when there is a family of products for example called redbear. there may be a redbear bed, redbear chair etc. Currently when populating the products table they have to add a product name(redbear) and choose a category (bed)

Using a pulldown list (multi) The related products currently show just the Product Name.

Is it possible to have more than one value for the label?.

for example
Option Label : Product Name - Product Category
Option Value : Product Name

so the client would see on the dropdown box - redbear - bed

Hope someone can help

Hi Greg, that works great.
Both product name and category shows in drop down.

Is there away to change the value from num to product name? I am trying to make SEO URL friendly titles.

I did try changing to SELECT product_name?

I've done a quick test and you should be able to use the following to make the stored value the product_name:
SELECT product_name, CONCAT(product_category, " - ", product_name)
FROM `<?php echo $TABLE_PREFIX ?>product_table`

Let me know if this doesn't work for you.
