    How do I populate a field with data based on the value of the data in another
    field of the same record? For example, if the zip code is between 80300 and
    80400, the region equals Boulder.

    You don't really need (read: should not have) another field in the same
    table, but if you are looking for a way to look up the LoacaleName of a
    ZIPCode in MyTable you will need a separate table containing all the ZIP
    codes and locale names (available via Googling) and a little query like

    SELECT LocaleName From ZIPCodeTable Where ZIP = MyTable.ZIPCode;

Since you're here... we have a small favor to ask...

More people are visiting & reading SPN than ever but far fewer are paying to sustain it. Advertising revenues across the online media have fallen fast. So you can see why we need to ask for your help. Donating to SPN's is vote for free speech, for diversity of opinions, for the right of the people to stand up to religious bigotry. Without any affiliation to any organization, this constant struggle takes a lot of hard work to sustain as we entirely depend on the contributions of our esteemed writers/readers. We do it because we believe our perspective matters – because it might well be your perspective, too... Fund our efforts and together we can keep the world informed about the real Sikh Sikhi Sikhism. If everyone who writes or reads our content, who likes it, helps us to pay for it, our future would be much more secure. Every Contribution Matters, Contribute Generously!
