Open Office Base 3.2 - how to include a list-box to assist data entry in my database

I am building a database in Open Office 3.2 and want to include a list-box in one of the fields where the user can select from a choice of entries. The 'Help' does not give me the steps required. I have already created the table containing the data to be used in the list box.

Click on Help in the menu bar. Open OpenOffice Help. Search for listbox creation.

Thank you for your reply. I have already looked at the 'Help' but it does not give me sufficient information as to how to create the list box. The 'Help' states that a wizard will open automatically when I set up the list box but I don't know how to set up the list box. The 'Help' does not help!
