If I select the service, "Online Orientation Training Program" is it possible to have a predetermined text populate the Description box next to it?

Select "Online Orientation Training Program" from list

Description auto fills with: Computer aided OSHA required training

Right, so the normal way to do this is to have a table of services as opposed to just a multiple choice drop down box within the field properties.  Then the user would choose a service and lookup fields would bring down the Service Headline and the Service Descriptions fields.   In the relationship you would set the "Proxy" field for the field [Related service to be the Service Headline field.

If you have existing data in this app to be converted to the new method, I suggest that you contact me and I can get the existing data converted to use the relationship.

I would definitely need help to make this happen. I'm not sure how to get a table into the field properties. I have four applications that would need this done. Would there be a fee associated with the conversion?
