Noob question on how to feed data from other forms

Post

     Hello,

      

     I have been giving filemaker 13 a try before buying it to see if it can replace my excel workflow. So far I like that I can customize the fields and everything, but I must be really stupid not to be able to find an answer to my question by myself.

      

     I have entered a file "contact" in it, I have 2 test contacts. I have created an inventory file, with it some random items. Now when I try to make an invoice, why can't I pull info from my contacts (to select a customer) and from my inventory (for the goods)? There must be a way to do this, it just makes so much sense.

      

     Thanks for your time and don't be afraid to send me info on that!!

      

     B.
