How do I create a Parent Child Form to update the children

I am using Nintex Forms 2013.  I have 2 lists. 

1.  Departments - Parent table.  This is a list of all of the departments.  Field "Department" is unique.  There are other fields such as contact information, etc. 

2.  DeptRoles - Child table. A list of roles by department.  Fields are "Department" (Lookup from Department List) and "Role"


I'd like to create a form where the user can select the Department (from a drop down list) and then see, add or remove  all of the Roles associated with the Department.


I tried to create the form off of the Child Table - "DeptRoles" .  I have the Department field on top and a Repeating section with Role.  But, I am not sure how to tie the repeating section to the Department field.  When I configure the repeating section, the "Connected To" drop down is blank.


Does this make sense?
