New to Filemaker pro 12 advanced

Post

I'm hoping someone can give me advice on the differences between Filemaker pro 8 and 12 Advanced. I used 8 for years and have recently moved to 12 Advanced. In 8, it was a really straightforward operation to add a button that automatically updates from a set field- for instance, using a contact code field that is linked to a separate Filemaker contacts database that automatically fills in the address and phone number when a contact name is added to the contact code field on the main database. Filemaker pro 12 Advanced is suggesting that I need to write a script for this, which is something I have never done. I've tried linking through relational databases, but I can't get it to work. I know this is quite basic stuff, but could someone tell me if script is what I need to perform this operation?

Thank you
