Trying to figure out how to make a field populate based on another field which is a lookup field.  

So I have a "part loaner" that looks up "parts list".  Parts lists has a "Coalesce([Device]+" "+[Make],[Model Number])" Field, and I want the Parts loaner List to populate the "Coalesce([Device]+" "+[Make],[Model Number])" when the user enters in the parts lists ID part ID.

This may be something that a SharePoint designer workflow could help out with.

Good luck...

Seems its not available when creating an access app.  its very restricted.  Although I guess I could make a desktop version and use it and possibly copy it over, not sure that will work, but its a good idea.

Why would you want to copy the data from one table to another?  That just duplicates the data.  You could always get the current value by using a query that joins the two lists.

I have an inventory database, and with that, a Part Loaner Tracker the user will enter the "item number" based on the inventory number on the piece, and I want it to populate the description of the piece so they can verify its the right part.  It also saves me from having to go to the other list, to figure out what it is they have loaned out.

I realize now, that I can set the field from the main inventory to show the corresponding cell under the datasheet.  It wont help the individual but takes care of my need to know what the piece is.
