initial creation of key field in child from parent key

Post

i have a "child" table in which i want the key to be automatically set up from the parent record that is currently active.  So the user either selects an existing record or creates a new master record in the master table.  After that record is chosen, the primary key needs to automatically be put into the "child" file foreign key.  I am new and not sure how to hold the data to pass it along.  any help would be appreciated.

thanks.
