If the second field is called "Dropdown2" the basic code to do it is the following (to be used as the custom Validation script of the first drop-down):

 

if (event.value=="Portugal") this.getField("Dropdown2").setItems(["2220", "2300", "2523"]);

I have put the fallow code with more than 1 option, but the code only assume Portugal (first option), when I choos Germany in my first dropdown, only appears Portugal options, what I did wrong?

 

if (event.value=="Portugal") this.getField("Dropdown3").setItems(["Choose CC","2000 OVA/CUC"]);
if (event.value=="Germany") this.getField("Dropdown3").setItem(["1000 K.Automotive Holding", "1100 ATT", "1200 ISE","1300 HAG"]);
