populate FormView fields from a DropDownList

Hi,

I'm trying to build an online form using asp.net and vb.net for the
code behind in Visual Studio 2005.

I want to fill 3 fields in a FormView that's connected to one table
(table1) with information from another table (table2) by choosing the
key field from table2 in a DropDownList.

Table2 has 3 fields with info that doesn't change (name, phone# and
email for about 5 customer service reps). I want each rep to choose
their name in the DropDownList to populate those fields in the
FormView.

I'm connecting to the sql db with an ObjectDataSource.

I'm thinking I just need to put some VB code into the
SelectedIndexChanged event of the ddl, something like:

*something goes here* = DropDownList1.SelectedValue.ToString()

But I'm drawing a blank on what would go to the left of the equal
sign.

Thanks in advance for the help.
