I have to search and retrieve the lookup values from the default sharepoint configuration (I'm not sure if this is the real name), for example I have to get the the lookup values of Language, Status, Priority, Country. I need the list of the values because I have to create for example a select box with all the countries, the user will select one and then I will save it.

Thank you very much.

To retrieve lookup values, you have to use the ID of the list item used to set the lookup value in the other list. If I have List A which has a lookup value from List B. I need the ID of the List B item I am connecting the lookup field from List A. Lookup values are connected by ID and not by value.
