      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).

      VQName – This is the name of the field the user will search up
      Current_x0020_Flag – Boolean to ID current record
      Attribute1 – First field that I would like to autopopulate.

      the rest of the fields are Attribute2 through Attribute12

      There are also StartDate and EndDate fields but I think the Current Flag is what I want to look at.

      Sorry for the double post but I have some Custom JS so the user can start typing the VQName and it will return a list matching what they type.

      Sorry for the late reply – can you show me the code you use to select the VQName? – also, is it a single ling of text field or a people picker?

      Please also tell what kind of field types Attribute1-12 are because the values might need to be cleaned up before writing to the form when using a query to get the old item.

      Worked like a charm. Sorry for completley glossing over that field.
