interchangeable feilds

Recommended Posts

It is a very basic question, i guest, but it is puzzling me. I have employee and employee ID fields

I am able to writhe the employee name and see its ID (I achieved that through self-join) but cant figure it out how to get the Name when I type the ID. In other words i want to type ether in ID or Name field and get the responding field automatically. Any help will be appreciated.

What you're trying to achieve is a bit odd. Typically, the employeeid field is put on the layout, and is formatted to be a popup menu using a value list that contains both the id and name. Usually, the value list is set to only show the second field (the name). This way, the user is populating the foreign key (employeeID), but isn't subjected to dealing with ids.

yep

that is an idea

to put the id and the name together in one drop-down menu.

Thank you for the clue.
