Filtering Lookup Not Working

I have two forms
  • Categories - in this form, I specify which users can view a specific category (checkboxes)
  • Search - this form contains two fields: a) a lookup field with a default value of 'user_id'; b) a category dropdown that filters by the lookup field (a)
I have done this in another form and it worked well.  However, in that form, each category could only be assigned to a single user.  Could the problem be that the lookup field contains multiple people? Thanks for any help you can offer! Chris

I figured out the problem ... the User Registration form doesn't save the actual User_ID. So, it was comparing apples and oranges.
