I don't have any database experience whatsoever so please go easy.
I'm guessing this kind of this is extremely simple for all of you.
I'm constructing a database of network resources and devices and I'd like to automatically update the values in one field based on the values of a field in another table.
The first table is called "IP" and the fields are called "Address", "IP Type" and "Device".
The second table is called "Devices" and contains the fields "Name", "Description", "Asset Number" and "IP".
Here's an example of the tables: (ignore the "code" tag. i've only used it to align my columns properly)
Name Description Asset IP
Xserve File Server 107 126.96.36.199
ProliantX DHCP 119 188.8.131.52
Address IP Type Device
What I want is for the Device field in the IP table to automatically update it's values based on the values found in the Devices table. In this case, the values that should appear in the Device field in the IP table are "Xserve" and "ProliantX".
I've searched through but haven't found a complete solution, just little pieces which I'm too inexperienced to put together myself.
