    Auto-fill one field from another table

    I am working on Access 2007.



    I have two seperate tables (called inventory and job log) and they have a few of the same field items (number, name, style 1, style 2, and area).

    I would like the job log table to autofill the name, style 1, style 2, and area when you type in the number when logging a new job (pulling this information from the inventory table). It has to be fairly straight forward but I am having trouble trying to make this happen. Could someone please help, I am sick of flipping between tables to fill in the information.

    Do you have the relationship of those two tables defined in the Relationship window? Have you created a Query with those two tables in it?
