    Hello --

    I am a student with very little background in Access. I am trying to
    setup a database that would auto-fill fields based on data in a
    table... I want to enter a company name, and then the company's price
    information, contact information, etc., should show up on the form so I
    can complete an order form...

    Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    I would suggest you look at the Northwinds sample database that ships with
    Access and see how it does this on the order form. Or, read previous posts.
    This is a very common question.

    Since you are in a class, I'm giving you some resources, not simply
    answering your question. That way, you'll better understand how it works.
    Feel free to post back if you get into it and have specific questions about
    how to make it work with your data structure.

    Good Luck,

    Thanks. It's not actually a project for class... it's something I'm
    doing for a summer job to make one of our processes a bit smoother and
    require less paper shuffling.

    Thanks for the information.

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!
