so is it possible to setup a sharepoint bdc column where you select one value and then have that return other values?

Say you select 'Symbol' but also have it return the Company Name?

ok cool. Can I use this to create a web service that I can call from an excel form template to populate a cell with a value from a sharepoint list?

I'd like to use an excel template as a content type and then populate a cell with a value from a list that has unique numbers. A PO Number.

Possible? Do you have any guidance on that?
