Auto Populate Field Based on other fields

I am a total access newbie when it comes to designing a database. I have managed to create a simple web database for project management but have run into a snag.

I want to have a field (field 3) auto-populate based on what is entered into two other fields (field 1 & field 2).

Field 1 is a date field (when a presentation is due). Field 2 is a yes/no checkbox (if checked, it means no presentation is necessary). Field 3 would be a calculated text field (?) because text cannot be entered into Field 1.

If field 1 is null and field 2 is checked, then I want "NA" to auto populate into field 3. However, if field 1 is null and field 2 is not checked, I want "TBD" to auto populate into field 3. If field 1 is not null, then I want field 3 to be null

Auto Populate form

I have a database I need to create a form that will auto populate based on an entered field.

I have two tables:
- tblMailing
- tblSurvey

tblMailing has the customer information with a unique id field "FI_Code". This database is imported monthly.

tblSurvey has about 25 survey fields that will link to the tblMailing database by an "FI_Code".

I need to create a form where the user types in the "FI_Code" and it will auto populate some fields from the "tblMailing" table, and also show the BLANK survey fields from "tblSurvey"

Need to be able to fill out the survey based on the "FI_Code" and have it saved back to "tblSurvey"

Auto Populate fields

I have a form (see attached) which has a field called PropertyID. Originally I had Indexed set to yes(duplicates OK). When I would enter an ID the manufacturer, model, and serial # fields would auto populate.

I then realized that with that setting users can enter duplicate data. When I changed Indexed to Yes(No Duplicates) I lost the auto populate function.

I would like to have the best of both worlds. I need the field to stay Unique as well as populate those 3 fields.

Auto Populated Field not Saving to Table

I have a form that we are going to use to track outages to our terminals. On the form, the user selects the terminal # and the rest of the information for the terminal auto populates from a query of the terminals table (Terminal name, address, etc). What I am using to auto populate fields is =[Term #].Column(1) for the first field and so on. They then enter the rest of the info (date of outage,etc). The issue I have is that when I look at the table for the outages, the auto populated fields are blank. Is there a way to save this data to the table

Auto populate based on similar entry

Is it possible to auto populate an Access text field in a form when one begins typing the letters, based upon similar entries made from previous file entries in this same field in the database?

This would be similar to how Office or Word does an auto type based upon the initial letters typed.

I've searched the forums and found a number of inquiries regarding auto population, but they're usually tied to another field or table, not the same field in the same database
