Auto popuarlate Fields in Access Form

  • 14 years ago

    When creating a new entry I would like once the TaskId is selected to automatically popuarlate others fields that are associated like the DateOpened field. When DateOpened and TaskId is entered it will not change but when entering new records I will select existing TaskId and auto fill the DateOpened that is linked to that TaskId. Please help.

    Hi Jessie,

    Welcome to Developer Fusion!!  I don't mean to be rude but in future please try and post your requests in the most relevent forum (I found this thread in the forum which invites feedback on features of this site!!).  I know it is easy to post a thread in the wrong forum, accidents happen, but, if this is the case, just notify a moderator or administrator so they can move it to the correct forum!! 

    I'm sorry I dont know the solution to your problem but hopefully the right people will see it here and be able to offer advice.

    Good Luck,
