    I have a form which shows fields that contain people's contact information.
    What I would like to do is have the last name field be a lookup field you can
    use to choose which person's info to look at. You type in a last name, it
    autocompletes, you either hit enter when the autocomplete is correct, or
    scroll through the drop down list to choose a name. This I can do. The
    problem is, I also want this field to be bound to the last name column of a
    table so that if someone is entering a new contact, the information they type
    in this field is stored as a new last name and they can fill in the rest of
    the information. It seems like this should be possible, but I can't seem to
    get all the stuff right. It seems I can only get it to be a field that they
    enter information into or a field that opens a record. is there a way to do
    both?

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!
