Multiple drop down menus as lookup values

Hello. Being rather new to FM, I've been creating a design database for my company. I am currently attempting to build a layout within our database as an order form, with multiple (20-30) line items, each being a drop down menu. I'd like to select a product for each line line item, which would autofill the related fields on the order form (product size, price, etc..) by pulling the info from a related layout, which holds each individual product as its own record. I cannot seem to figure out how to create the proper relationship so that each line item (when a producted is selected), pulls the related info from the correct record in the related layout. After setting up the relationship, I find that FM wants to pull ALL of the related record info and autofill every line item within my order form when I select a product within any one of the line items. Sounds very simple....but I'm just starting here.
