I need to be able to have categories and subcategories on custom fields.
I'm already using it in categories but have a need to use it on custom fields as well.

For Example:
I would like to be able to choose a department cost code and then have a dropdown list of expense codes specific to that department to choose from.
We input our expense codes for IT purchases so we can match up the invoices when they come in.

I've asked about this in the past and was told it would be a feature enhancement.  My workaround was to just create another custom field, but not sure if this would be viable for you if the expense codes are sensitive to each department.  If not, that approach should work.

I did respond to your comment on my other answer; sorry no one else knows of a way to do this either.  I posted something for you on UserVoice; it needs to be voted up.

John is correct.  Currently, there isn't a way to create a dropdown box for custom fields.  We have faced a similar issue in the past and we had to use a custom field that the user could input text into.
