I have created a page with a 1-many dataObject storing the names of a project and who is responsible. I need to create another 1-many table, so that inside the popup when adding a new record there is a drop down menu to select which person. I don't want to create a page for each person, like it does in the tutorial. Can onyone help?

Not sure to get you right
You mean adding a record in the projects table?
Take a look at this code.

class Person extends DataObject {

class Project extends DataObject {

    static $has_one = array(
		'Responsible' => 'Person'

    function getCMSFields_forPopup() {
		$fields = new FieldSet();
		$mySet1 = DataObject::get('Person');
		$map1 = $mySet1 ? $mySet1->toDropDownMap('ID', 'Name') : '';
		$fields->push(new DropdownField('ResponsibleID',
		return $fields;


class ProjectHolder extends Page {

function getCMSFields() {
    $fields = parent::getCMSFields();
    $projectstable = new ComplexTableField(
			'Projects ',  //Relation Name that doesn't exists
			'Project ',
				'ProjectName' => 'ProjectName',				
				'Responsible.Name' => 'Responsible'
    $projectstable ->setParentClass(false);

Did it help?
