Autolookup and datagrid?

  • 13 years ago

    Hello people, this is my first post here, I think that this is pretty nice site.

    OK, I am into databases, but most of my work was in Access and VBA, and now when I am switching to C# I get frustrated because some of the cool stuff from access is missing.

    Autolookup for instance. I am building a simple database: Invoices, Invoice details, Suppliers, Articles.

    I have a form with several texboxes that are bound to the current Invoice, and below I have datagrid that shows Invoice details for the current Invoice. Inside the datagrid there is a column that represents a  4 digit code that identifies Article. This is only thing that I need to connect Article to Invoice details, but I would like to lookup Article table for the name of the Article and show it in the Datagrid.

    How do I do that? I dont need the code, only explanation.
