A drop-down list box is also known as a select list, look-up table or a pick-from list.
When you are adding records, drop-down lists increase data accuracy by letting you select data from a list rather than type it in. Drop-down are particularly useful for oft-repeated data entry fields, like "Country" "Status" or "Category".
Drop-downs are also used to connect a record to an item in a related table. For example, if you were entering a new Project, the drop-down for the "Manager" field, would be a list of Employees.
