setting variables during search


Hello, please bear with me as I am new to Filemaker...I have a form, the user inputs order#, date, etc. Order# is passed to another form called OrderEditForm where you need to add customers. I then have a button to go to's where the problem lies.

Once I get to CustomerTable, if it is a repeat customer, how do I let the user select the Customer and pass that "CustomerID" back to the OrderEditForm (for population of that form), or if it is a new customer, add said customer to CustomerTable?

I can't figure out how to make the code allow the user to choose the customer they want and then set a variable as the CustomerID of that choice.  How to get CustomerTable selection pass from one layout to another. Is it one of those Get() functions or what?

Thanks in advance.
