I have a table called Badges that has a field for EmpID. When I'm entering an EmpID number in the table I would like for it to look up the EmpName based on the EmpID from a table called Employees and store the value into the.EmpName field in the Badges table.

I am using the trial version of CCS 5.1 with SQL server and ASP.

Thanks for any help you can provide me!

Main question- is it an Autocomplete or Autofill (that is, you type the number and it does the lookup without sumbitting the form)
or you type the number and it gets the name after submitting (Updating/Inserting) the form?

I would suggest the Autofill is the best option as you can see the results. You would click on the EmpID field on the Badges form and click the Autofill builder which will ask for the source table and query, and which fields to update.

There is also an example project for Ajax options here:

and a bunch of other examples for download here:

using CCS 5, you can open the project and change it to your preferred language (ASP) and view the examples, and copy/paste code as needed.

A word of advice with CodeCharge - most of the time there will be a built-in action or builder or function to make life easier for you. You rarely need to dig into the generated code and make changes. Changing the generated code is a Bad Idea as CCS will then not regenerate that portion of code (as it assumes you have changed it for a good reason)

The Autofill worked perfectly. Thank you so much!
