See, for example:
Multiple entries in dropdown lists
and, for different elements from a selected item to be output to different content controls, see:
Multiple entries in dropdown lists - Page 5

Sorry if I was vague with question, was wanting

1st drop down list to be able to pick client, and their details (1) will fill
(2,3,4,5)
2nd drop down list to be able to pick Company details (A) will fill (B,C,D,E)

Would like to to be set out with both lists beside each other on the page, list1 left indent and list 2 right indent

[drop down list 1] [Drop down list 2]
1 - MR Client A- Company detail
2- His street B- Their Street
3- His suburb C- Their Suburb
4- His town D- Their town
5- His Country E- Their Country

The links I posted already address that for a single dropdown. Only minor modifications would be needed to cater for a second dropdown.

The simplest approach is to use a two-column table and export each content control's output to the relevant cell. Do that and you don't even need a content control to act as a container for the output.

I could not log onto this site for 4 hours, and need an answer, what you gave me had not worked so needed advice, as I am trying to get things sorted so I can use this, as am sorting some international deliveries, and aware of the time zone differences am still trying to get an answer that will work

Don't know what I'm doing wrong, but all I get if 1st drop-down is used, then I get a non delimitated list, in both 1st and 2nd lists, same if I use drop down list 2
