I'm new to SugarCRM, and am trying to quickly get some flow into play.

I have accounts, which contain contacts. I'm trying to manage Reference Opportunities utilizing the Opportunities module. I've created a relate field named Reference Opportunity Name which relates to Contacts. Can Sugar automatically populate the Account name of the company that a given contact is tied to? As such, can I also pull other fields from the contacts module based upon the chosen contact name?

Logic - If Joe Contact is from ABC Company, then Account Name = ABC Company, Dept = Sales, etc, etc. all filled in because I chose Joe Contact.
