I hope I can explain properly. We have a list that we keep current and historical info in. If a user wants to update an item, I have it already set to search for the current names so they can select it. Now, once they select a name, I want the other fields to fill in with the list entry listed as the active entry.
I thought about cascading drop downs but is there a better way?
It could be done with some custom code, but to write an example I need the internal name of the field that mark an item as active, the “name” field and the fields to update (internal name and field type).
