Why not just put the related venue fields on the Event layout? No need to double up the data. The alternative is to make the fields a lookup of the related values.
Thanks for the answer. As I did some more digging yesterday I realized this is probably what I need to do. I made some progress yesterday. I got to the point where I was able to start typing a venue and it was looking up the names from my other table. What I was having trouble doing is having to related venue fields show up once I selected the correct venue.
But since I know what I need to do I just need to study more on lookup fields which is something I can do on my own time. Thanks for the advice and I will resume from there.
Use looked up value fields if you want to preserve a copy of the data that won't change if the data in the look up table is later modified. Put the related table's fields on your layout if you want changes in the related table to automatically update on this layout.
