    autofill off of lookups

    I'm developing a production database to track and monitor Production runs. In the scheduling database I'm trying to get that when I enter the Product Description Code i'm trying to get it to lookup the description from the product information table already built. Any tips will help!

    Use a multi-column combobox to select the Code. Expression in textbox can then reference the combobox column with the Description. Reference column index. Index begins with 0. So if Description is in column 2 the index is 1.

    =[comboboxname].[Column](1)
