Fill field based on selection


The situation I would like to achieve is as following. Within a table I have added a field named Type which is empty. Now, after selecting one or multiple names from a listbox, I would like to assign the types to the names selected.

I would like to do this by selecting a type from a another table. So, for instance, when I select the names Test and Test2 I would like to select Type1 from the listbox and this should be filled in the Type field within the table. Is there any way to do this?

Example table1:

Name - Description - Type

Test - Test descr. -

Test2 - Test descr2 -

Example table2:




Thanks in advance.
