Edit Box Population

Recommended Posts

I have 2 edit boxes in my layout. I want the value to be the same as another edit box in the layout. I can not figure out how to make this happen. Seems as though you have to relate it to something in the table to generate the value. Any assistance would be appreciated.

Are both fields from the same table?

no they are from different tables. i want to use field 1 from table x to populate field 2 in table y.

If they are from two different tables, you can't use an auto-enter calculation, but a script trigger will do.

btw, if you have both fields on one layout, then these two tables must be related somehow (or one is a global).

Knowing the purpose would be useful. As a rule, you do NOT want to duplicate your data.
