I have an existing list "Country List", Column "COUNTRY" contains name of the all the countries.

I would like to create a look up field "Origin Country" in a list "Order List" via OM. How do I do that?

Through the UI or through code? –  Colin Jun 9 '11 at 21:05
    
OM would suggest object model - I'll update the title to make that clear. –  Andy Burns Jun 10 '11 at 8:48

var list = web.Lists["Order List"];
var targetList = web.Lists["Country List"];
var fieldName = list.AddLookup("Origin Country", targetList.ID, true);
var field = list.Fields.GetByInternalName(fieldName) as SPFieldLookup;
field.LookupField = targetList.Fields["COUNTRY"].InternalName;
field.Update();
