Getting value from another related field (ID) when using type ahead to select a contact

  1. I have a CRM database where I need tie actions to contacts
  2. I have a field in the Action table ScheduleWithPersons, which I have type ahead on the contact's fullName field. This works fine.
  3. BUT, I need to relate the action to the contact's ID, not his/her name, as his/her name is not protected as static like ContactID is
  4. The only way I've come up with so far is to do an instant lookup on the contact's table for the id.
  5. is there a better way to instantly pull a contact's ID when I've type-ahead identified that contact????

Thank you in advance!
