Form Auto-Population

I have a form, that once the user chooses a name, I want it to automatically fill in information from the query onto the form.

<CFQUERY datasource="myds" name="employees" blockfactor="100">
      SELECT *
      FROM tbl_employees
      WHERE Active=1
      ORDER BY SortName asc      
</CFQUERY>

And the form just looks like this:

Name:  Drop Down box with names from the above employees query
Agt ID:  Blank Box (this is where I want the agt ID from the employees query to populate automatically when the user chooses a name from the above box.

Is there any way to do this?

This is how you populate the values of the checkbox.

Empolyee account :<input type="text" name="activated_accounts1" value="#employees.activated_accounts#">

I will post hte code for this automatically populated by selecting drop down soon.

Okey this is what you will have to do is use javascript or submit button .
I will use javascript that submits to itself when someone selects the drop down and form post to itself and
that will run another query of
<CFQUERY datasource="myds" name="employees" blockfactor="100">
     SELECT *
     FROM tbl_employees
     WHERE Active=1
 and account_id = #form.account_id#
     ORDER BY SortName asc    
</CFQUERY>

adn then post the result in
<input type="text" name="activated_accounts1" value="#employees.activated_accounts#">

Put this in the HEAD section of your page:
<script language="javascript">
var agents = new Array();
<cfoutput query="employees">
agents[#employees.currentRow#] = "#employees.agtID#";
</cfoutput>
</script>

then in your body code:

<select name="employeenames" onChange="document.getElementById('empagtID').value = agents[this.selectedIndex.value];">
<cfoutput query="employees">
<option value="#employees.currentRow#">#employees.name#</option>
</cfoutput>
</select>

<input type="text" name="empagtID" id="empagtID">


This may work. Code is untested, but I think something like that will get you the results you're looking for.

pindaldave, umbrae, and blackops...i've tried those suggestions and still can't get it to work.  The best I've gotten was the one from blackops, but it's giveing me a wrong value in the Agt ID box.  I will look at this again sometime soon, but going to just divide the points between you guys and try and figure it out later.  Thanks...

I think I can speak for umbrae and pindaldave, that it's not just about points. We want to help you get this deal working. Post the code that you are using and I'll give you some more advice on what to populate where.
