[development] CCK lookup and drop-down list

Thanks for the reply, Brad! Just to be sure though, since I don't want to re-invent the wheel if there's a module already, but there isn't a module to do table column lookups, 'programmable' via widgets, instead of code? I need to pass this project onto a non-technician for ongoing support and maintenance, and that person won't understand any PHP code.

You can use a CCK select field and define the allowed values using PHP.

Your code would look something like this:

$values = array();
$results = db_query("select id, name from {table}");

while ($result = db_fetch_array($results)) {
   $values[$result['id']] = $result['name']

return $values;
