lookup for a particular field on a custom object

Hi all
 I have a cutom object A which has certain fields like Center, District, Region, etc. I have another object where I need to create custom lookup fields to individual fields of the object A like a field to capture Center of object A, District of Object A and so on.
Is it possible and how?
Thank you

Unfortunately you can't do it. You can have a lookup field to Object A and then create the formula fields to display the field values of Object A. The formula field can have the value like Object_A__r.District__c.

I think what you mean I need to have a lookup field to object A and another formula field which can be displayed by using that lookup field which means I need to create double the number of fields. Is that correct or am I missing anything?
