Best way to search another table and return?




I looked for this answer around, searched the forums here and couldn't find a concrete "best" practice for this.


I'm in an invoice layout with customer information on one tab, that comes from another table. On entering a new record I'd like to allow the user to search for an existing customer and return/fill out the customer fields after the search, on the original invoice layout if this is possible.


I'm assuming on the invoice layout I can use the customer::* fields but how to let the user do the search and return to fill those fields is eluding me.


I can't use a custom dialog because they may need to search on more than the 3 field limit of the dialog. Any help would be appreciated.
