I have a form where I need to query a view (view has been added as an ODBC table) for a specific users full name.  Once the users full name is located, from the view, I want to grab the userid and populate it in another field that will update the table the form is designed form.  Can I do all of this on one form or will I have to have two forms?  Do my two tables (one table, one view) have to have a relationship established.

Hope this questions makes sense.

One form should do.  If I understand your intent correctly, the tables needn't have a data relationship, as you are establishing a relationship by a manual process of searching the view.  However, if you do have a relationship, than the assignment can be automated so you don't need to do it manually.
