Creating Popup Menus

I'm trying to convert a form from a FoxPro database into Access. There is a feature in FoxPro that create Menu type objects very quickly from a table of possible values. Then you can call the menu object from something like a right-click-event and it knows that if you lick on one of the selections you want it to replace the value in that field with menu selection. All of this without having to explicitly program it. I could of course build little forms that would ultimately behave this way, but it's a lot more work. Does Access have any feature like this that I'm just not finding?
I've attached an example screen shot. All of the formatting of the popup that you see is automatic.
