Need to retrieve description of drop-down field into another field

I have a field in which is being used a distinct drop-down listing for initials; however, I need to get the full name linked to those initials (the description linked to the value) stored into another field.  Can ACT do this w/o an addon?

This product DOES NOT do what I need it to do.

Ok, so perhaps explain further exactly what it is you want to do...

 

Are you saying that you want a second field to auto-populate with a name when someone enters the related initials in the first field?

 

What do you mean by saying "linked"?

I would think that product would do it ...

The table would have two fields, one with the initials and the other with the full name. Filling in the first would auto add the other.

Is that not what you want?
