I can't find anything about this in the documentation, but I expect, from other databases I've used, that it is asking you which field to display from the second table when listing the first table.
For example if table 1 is people and it has a field "country code". If table 2 is a list of codes and countries, and you set up a relationship between the two. If you choose the country name to display, then when table 1 is listed instead of displaying the country code it will display the country name for that country code.
