    Below is a form derived from one of your forms I presume you're working on right now.

    If you select "9 Kosta Agathopoulos" from the "Name - If name doesn't appear Click on No Name" field, the SquadJersey Number - If not known leave Blank, and Email fields will also be filled.

    Same if you select "9 ETHAN ALAS" from the "Name - If name doesn't appear Click on No Name" field.

    You will be able to do that with the help of Update / Calculate conditional logic.

    I hope this helps. Please let us know if you need any further assistance. Thank you.
