could somebody help me to pre-populate a number of text boxes within ADD page having on mind that the first step should be entering of the PIN (Personal Identification Number) upon which, the rest of the text boxes I need to be automatically pre-populated (i.e., LastName, FirstName, DOB, Address etc..). There are approximately 4 000 000 of records in the corresponding table. How to have this customization done in 9.x? Thanks!

it would be done the same as any other Add Record. You will need to set the PIN # field property AutoPostBack=True, and then in the TextChanged event for this field you can set values for the other fields. Sounds like you want to do a look up into a table to retrieve this information. Make sure that you have taken care of indexing your database so that retrieval will be fast.

You can use GetRecord("PIN="+this.PIN.Text) after following Miles' instruction. If you are not happy with the speed, you may look for Ajax combobox autocomplete like Telerik.
