Look up data from another table based on values in a previous field

P: 1
I have a question in MS Access

I have two tables

MASTER with Fields 1, Field 2, Field 3
TRANS with Field1, Field 2, Field,10

I need to set up a look up condition where, I need [TRANS]!Field 2 to have options picked up from Table MASTER based on values entered in Field 1.

Is this possible in table design view ? If yes how ?

I tried by including the follwing

SELECT DISTINCT [Master].[Field 2] FROM [Master]

But this retrieves all records from Master. I need only records that match with the Field 1 that is entered in Trans.
