default value for data field ?

Hi all

I have a simple question. If you have field in a table with the data type test but you used the Lookup wizard to create a drop down menu. I have six options on it but I would like one of them to be a default value.the six option i have are AN,FV,LP,BD,TY,AND IN, and i would like IN to be the default value.  How did I do this?

Thank you

RE: default value for data field ?

Go into the table, highlight the field with the lookup and below the grid you will see the properties of the field. Set the Default Value = "IN".
