Form - Drop Down Menu save choice to a field

Form - Drop Down Menu save choice to a field

(OP)
I have a form, a field called user_id is a drop down menu contains "user_id","firstname","lastname". When i enter a new record and type fristname so I would type "Ralph" and when I press enter or click to save the current user_id = 5644.

Also, I would like to save the user_id for this field once select to another field called super_id (this is a drop down with multi selection and it is a text field.

Drop down looks like this.

ID,Firstname, lastname
2222 Anna Gonzalez

4444 Frank Pezza
5555 Mauricio Jimenez
5644 Ralph Galardi <------
7777 Thomas Rombouts

I posted a response to your original question:
thread702-1778461: When Create a new record copy a field record to a drop down field with many choices

You do not need to build multiple questions about the same topic. If you need to edit something that is not editable, red flag ("Report") the thread, and you'll be asked for a comment. There you can request the moderators/admins to edit your title or whatever.

But at least you did give a little more information. My response should still stand, so look at that in the other thread.
