I have a database with:
Contacts {Name, Address, Phone Number, ID} etc
Jobs {Job Number, Name, Adress Phone Number, Job Description} etc

How do I create a JOB form where when I enter the name which is linked to the contacts and the address from that name comes up Automatically.

Contacts {Name, Address, Phone Number, ID} etc
Jobs {Job Number, Name, Address Phone Number, Job Description}

You need to add a relationship between the tables.
[Contacts] 1 or many [Jobs]
[Jobs] must have 1 [Contact]
(not going to deal with many to many possibility)

Contacts {Name, Address, Phone Number, ID} etc
Jobs {Contact_ID, Job Number, Name, Address Phone Number, Job Description}

Contact_ID in the Jobs table is the foreign Key to the Contact table ID field

Sample query (not tested or checked)

Select [Contacts].[Address]
From [Contacts],[Jobs]
Where [Contacts].[ID]=[Jobs].[Contact_ID] And [Jobs].[Name] = input

Hope this helps

edit reason: formating

I would imagine you will invariably have a situation where a contact has many jobs and a job can have more that one contact. 

For many to many relationships you just need a joining table like JobContact, eg:

  Contact [ContactID, Name, Address, PhoneNumber, WhenCreated, WhenModified, CreatedBy, ModifiedBy]

   Job [JobID, Name, Adress Phone Number, Job Description, WhenCreated, WhenModified, CreatedBy, ModifiedBy]

   JobContact [JobID, ContactID, WhenCreated, WhenModified, CreatedBy, ModifiedBy]

A couple of coding conventions that I normally stick to are: don't make table names pural, add some basic logging fields so you can at least tell who last modified it and who created it (Created/Modified).
