Distinct Option Lists

m-Power now allows distinct option lists. You now have the ability when creating external option lists, to display only the unique records. You can enable this feature in the Application Properties for an option list, located under the Program Options tab.  This can be useful when your field has many entries for the same values. For example, if your user is selecting a currency, you would not want your option list to show thousands of options for USD and another thousand for EURO.  Enabling this property will create one option for each.  Any other unique records that get added to your table will also appear in your option list.
