Does anyone know if it is possible to create a lookup column in SharePoint 2010 that shows multiple column values?  For example, I can get the lookup column to work and show entries from a list in my site, but i want it to show another column from that list as well.  I want it to show customer code AND the customer name that relates to that code....  Please see the image for an example.

All of the customer information resides in list.

 What I want...

My suggestion is to create a new column that basically joins the values of the customer code and the customer name columns.  Then point your lookup to the new column.

The formula would be something like this:
=[Customer Code]&" "&[Customer Name]
