Auto-fill one field from another table

I am working on Access 2007.

I have two seperate tables (called inventory and job log) and they have a few of the same field items (number, name, style 1, style 2, and area).

I would like the job log table to autofill the name, style 1, style 2, and area when you type in the number when logging a new job (pulling this information from the inventory table). It has to be fairly straight forward but I am having trouble trying to make this happen. Could someone please help, I am sick of flipping between tables to fill in the information

is there a way to have a form set to either auto populate fields based on the FIRST FIELD? For example: if the user type in the STUDY ID, the other fields like (first name, last name etc.) are auto-populated/auto-filled?
and if the STUDY ID is new and not in the table, then the users simply fill in all the fields/complete the form and save?

Field 1: Meeting Type
Field 2: Meeting Year
Field 3: Auto-fill field (starts out blank)

Field 1: I choose "Annual Meeting" for the meeting type (this puts AM into Field 3)
Field 2: I choose "2010" for the meeting year (this adds 10 into Field 3)
Field 3: "AM10" is now what shows in the field

I save the data base. I go look at the table and there is nothing in the Field 3 column, when there should be "AM10."

Any ideas about how to get it to save that info in the table

Design View = Text 6 Char =Next Column
My Table has the following fields:
Field A = aaabbb
Field B = aa-aaa
Field C = aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa

When I fill the fields I want them to advance to the next field if they have the maximum characters, 6 char in Field A & 5 Char in Field B. I have been able to auto enter the "-" with no problem in Field B. I only use Field C when I want to make a note. I'm not using a form view. I'm trying to avoid unnecessarily keys to continue.

Work Flow:
Field A - 6 char auto advance to Field B
Field B - 5 char auto advance to Field A
Field C - I use mouse to select since it's a rare event.

Auto fill data (number) between tables
I created a database to track a group of records (people). I couldn't figure out how to auto number the primary key to a random unique number that was less than 10 digits so I generated a list of random numbers and just use the next number off the list as I enter the next person which works OK- but I have to put that number on each table as the ID number to relate back to the Primary key and it seems that I should be able to have those auto fill with the entered number. Is it possible to have the number typed in "table 1" (people) primary key auto fill onto each of the other tables as an ID number?

Does anyone know of an easy way to set 3 different text fields to automatically fill with the same info?

I don't know vba at all, so if it's that, I'm done for. Is there anyway to set a default on the table? For example, one field will always say something like $2.95. So, when I add data into the form, I'd like the field to be pre-filled

Auto-Fill Text box on form
The problem I have now is as follows.

The 'TrainingDuration' table has 4 fields, ID, Duration, StartTime, and EndTime. The 'ID' field is linked to the 'Duration' field in the 'TrainingSchedule' table. Which works fine if you go into the actual Schedule table.

What I want to be able to do is have the fields 'StartTime' and 'EndTime' auto-fill in the various forms. The problem is the StartTime and EndTime aren't actually in the Schedule table, they're in the Duration table.

Appending Records with a desired auto number in a table with Auto Number
Here is my issue. In a table with an Auto Number index some records have been deleted. I have been able to recreate them along with their original auto number. The problem is that I do not know how to append these records forcing the original auto number. I have tried changing the auto number field to a number field in the table, this works except I cannot change it back to auto number.

I am sure Im not the first with this question or issue. I did search through a couple hundred entries about auto number before I posted this question

Autofill a field based on previous filed within the same column
How do I get access to auto fill a text (supplier)? I realize that for a new supplier I would have to input the supplier name, however my question is what should I do for Access to enable auto-fill so that the next time I have to input that supplier it would auto fill for me. Please keep in mind that all of this is happening in a single column.
For example: In the supplier column, I typed Dell in the first row, Apple in the second row, HP in the third row. Now when I start typing 'Apple' in the fourth row, I want it to autofill 'Apple' because I have already input that once
