I have a form with the fields: date, client, atty, time, billable and
description. All these fields update the Time Sheet Table.
I want the atty field to automatically take the attorney's name from the
table Attorney which contains one field called Atty.
So for I can only figure out how to use a combo box to chose the Attorney

You could set the default value of the control using DLookup().
This could be a locked combo box that displays whatever value you want or
can derive from tblAttorney.
