I'd like to have a set-up for a FormView Insert Template Field (call it "ListValue") ( for Table A ) that would act like this:

A)  A drop down list DD is populated from a datatable B (another table)
B)  When an item from the drop down list DD is selected
     i)  the item displayed in the drop down field shows on a field on the Template ("DisplayField")
    ii)  the Primary Key from the datatable B, associated with the drop down list selected item, would be bound to the Table A "List Value" field.

Any suggestions, starting points, etc would be appreciated.
