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

2. List Box - this is more complicated.I need one field to populate based on another - used to work, but now it doesn't.

3. SQL - Using a QBF search. Set up search using SQL statements found on another forum/help site, all but two work like they should.

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?

Hide the Pop-up Calendar by pressing the Escape key
In the tutorial A Pop-up Calendar for your Access Forms I showed how you could use the ActiveX calendar control to add a pop-up calendar to a form. The calendar is placed on the form just like any other control but remains hidden until the user clicks a specific field, when the calendar becomes visible. Choosing a date from the calendar hides it again. But what if you didn't mean to open the calendar... how can you hide it without choosing a date?

Understanding relationships and auto populate...
It may help to understand what kind of tables I currently have in Access 2010.

I have an employee table that shows employees and some basic information about each of them. This table has an employee ID field that is not an autonumber but it is unique to each employee (10004928).

auto populate mutiple fields
I need some input regarding the following:

I am trying to populate multiple fields on a form by selecting a single item from a look-up list. But it's really not a simple as this.

In my table I have a maintenance code that is tied to multiple equipment codes. Each equipment code needs to be recorded as a single piece of data. What I am trying to do is create a form where the user can select from a look-up list the maintenance code to populate the maintenance code field and then the associated equipment code fields will auto populate with only one equipment code per field.

I do not all. I've included a diagram to help demonstrate what I am trying to do.

PS I apologize in advance for any breech of "forum protocol"
