You make a record group that has the query.

Then you make an LOV that uses the record group. Select the LOV and right click to get the Properties dialog.

The LOV properties dialog has a property called "Column Mapping Properties", so click in the value column of that to get the LOV COlumn Mapping dialog. In that dialog you put the column name from the record group, and use the [Browse...] button to select which item in the form gets populated from that column of the record group.
