    I've created a report that needs to show the contents of a lookup cell. How
    can I get it to show the text in the lookup cell instead of the ID number the
    lookup is connected to?

    Reference the coloumn number of the lookup cell instead of just the lookup cell

    =[LookUpCellName].[Column](1)

    The cell in the report that has the name [Main Menu].[Line] is the lookup
    cell. It gives a drop down menu in the tables that goes to [Line].[Line].
    When I tell the report to refrence to =[Main Menu].[Column](4) and run the
    report it prompts me to enter something much like a parameter query would
    with [Main Menu] being the parameter. When I make the report reference to
    =[Line].[Column](1) it prints #Name? on the report where the line name should
    be. What am I doing wrong?
