I had this same issue - I spoke to support about it. Returning a corresponding ID from ajax autocomplete is not a built-in function. They acknowledged it was a logical feature addition.

The work around is to do a SQL lookup in the appropriate event (Before Insert in my case). See my two examples below for two different AJAX autocomplete fields on my form.

Asset_Job_CodesF1.Text = Ctype(New integerfield("",Settings.financedataaccessobject.ExecuteScalar("SELECT client_ident FROM proposal_clients WHERE client_name Like '" & Asset_Job_CodesF1.Text & "'")).value,Int64)

Asset_Job_CodesF2.Text = (New textfield("",Settings.financedataaccessobject.ExecuteScalar("SELECT ID FROM timefileruserlist WHERE FullName Like '" & Asset_Job_CodesF2.Text & "'"))).GetFormattedValue("")
