default value in a TextField via LookUp ?!

Is it possible to make a text field show default values via LookUp from a sharepoint list?

The process has 2 stages:


1) once when the user makes the request

2) the approver makes changes to the form



The Currency DropDown option is a choice and has pre-defined currencies



The list below (PlanRates) is the sharepoint custom list:





I have also added a Calculated Field and connected to the Rate field.
Now at least I have the lookup() function within the calculated field.


It is just a matter of figuring out how to nest the lookup() to the custom list called PlanRates


How do I nest the look(up) to the PlanRates so that

it checks which currency is chosen via the dropdown list and then shows the relevant Value ?




I have a feeling that the currency dropdown also needs to lookup to the custom list PlanRates.
Please suggest and advise .... thanks
