Three Tables:
I am writing the fields in Table.FieldName format below.

1a. Customer.ID
1b. Customer.Name

2a. Invoice.ID
2b. Invoice.Customer Name
2c. Invoice.Customer ID

3a. Invoice Details.ID
3b. Invoice Details.Invoice ID

1a, 2a, 3a are all primary fields.

Relationship one to many between:
1. Customer ID.ID ->Invoice.Customer ID
2. Invoice.ID -> Invoice Details.Invoice ID

Now, in Filemaker this was the way to use the forms:
Create a new Invoice (i.e. create a new record using a Form based on
Invoice Table).
Enter a value in the field Invoice.Customer Name  (a combo box populates it
with values from Customer.Name)
I have been able to reach upto here in Base.

This is the part where I need help:
In Filemaker, the Invoice.Customer ID field used to be setup as a lookup
field to auto-retrieve the Customer ID number from the Customer Table when
an entry was made in Invoice.Customer Name. The obvious purpose of doing
this is to link the Invoice and Customer table. I do not know how I am
supposed to get this done in Base. Hope I am clear. Kindly let me know if I
am not. Thank you for your time.
