Hi,
I am having two list one is source list List1 and target list List2.List1 has some column with choice value and when the user will enter new row/value in List1 then the same value i want to populate in List2.
Exp: Source:  List1-> Manager name(Choice Type),Request Date(TodayDate),UniqueTag# (Autogenerate-Text)

In the target list we have  total 30 column where first 3 column are same as List1 which user entered just now. When User will enter the data in List2 , i want the first 3 col should be autogenerate from List1 because as user has already entered the value previously.
I can see the use of Lookup value in SP2007 but when i select the "Get information from:" i.e. List1 then "In this column:" i am getting only text type col name here ,the choice col is not listed here in "In the column" .
So i can see here only my "UniqueTag#" column because its a text col here.
How to achive this with lookup technique or any other idea.
Pls Note:Our Client is now allowing for any custom coding for SP2007 in .net.

Please Help.
Thanks

Have you considered using a workflow created in SharePoint designer to automatically create an item in list2 when you finish creating the item in list1?

Do you have SharePoint Designer 2007?  If not you'll first need to download and install it.

Then, take a look at http://office.microsoft.com/en-us/sharepoint-designer-help/create-a-workflow-HA010100591.aspx

SharePoint Designer 2007 is a free download (http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/en/details.aspx?FamilyID=baa3ad86-bfc1-4bd4-9812-d9e710d44f42&displaylang=en)

You could use Nintex to create a similar workflow, if you prefer.
