Autofill dilemma


For those of you aware of MS Access, In MS Access when I am on a table I can tab through each field when adding a record and start typing on each field and it will auto fill the selection as I am typing - This is regardless of whether the field is belongs to  another table or not


I have noticed in filemaker this is only possible if the value list belongs to a custom list rather than fields from another table, So in essence most of my value lists are coming form fields of other tables involved in a relation with the table I am working from. 


Is there any way I can overcome this issue and be able to fill in records on a table just like I do on excel or MS Access by tab and typing (auto fills)??
