Drop Down List - Product to Pricelist

Drop Down List - Product to Pricelist

(OP)
Hello,

Really need someones help on how to do this.
How do you create a Dropdown list that has your product listed and when you select one from the list it displays the price for that product in a box below.

Forgive me if this is so simple, i just dont know where to start.

Thanks.

Example Below in what im talking about

Productlists:  Dropdown
               Product1
               Product2
               Product3

Pricing:       Product1Price
               Product2Price
               Product3Price

Thanks again

RE: Drop Down List - Product to Pricelist

Not sure if this is the best way to do it, but the way I do.
I would create a separate database, either as a different file or within this as a different Table.

With that, you create your Product list that contains the details (inluding price).

The file that you want those 2 things displayed would ave the product (a drop down value list that's created by the field names from your product database.  That would show a drop down with the name of your products).  You then create a relation between the 2 databases using your product name as the link. The Price field would just be looking to your product database price field.

effectsguy is right.
1-many relationship would be the cleanest.
All the best!
