Merge Field in Formula

Hi, I am trying to update a field using Workflow Rule Field Update. I have a custom object which has 2 fields. a) a lookup field to User object b) Employee Number (a field on User object) Based upon the selection from a), i want to access and update the field b). I cant seem to get the value of b) using formula and merge fields. Any idea? Thanks Caps

You are looking for cross-object updates in workflow, which is not currently in the product.  It is on the roadmap, though.

Hope this helps.
