Prime Table Field


I am looking for a way to prime a field in my tables. We work with fiscal years, I have a table called "current year" that is related to my other tables by a field called yearID. within this table I may have a record for last year, this year and next year. The user would select the year they want to work with and then the user creates a new record in one of the other tables I want the system to "prime" or automagically enter the current working year ID from year table. They could be entering data into last year or this year so using a date calculation does not work. I have spent hours trying to figure this out using calculated fields etc to no avail. Any help would be appreciated.
