Hi!

i have 2 files. From first file i use GoToRelatedRecord[showOnlyRelated] to go to the related records int he second file. HOW DO I LOOP thought ALL related records ONE BY ONE ( in order lets say to add up the total price ):? Is there a way to do so only from file two?? or do i need to have a script in file one ( that goes goToNextRecord ):

The reason i need the script to run in the second file - is to keep the database as flexible as possible.

Plz help.

After using the GTRR script step then you just need to run a script in your related file.

There are Loop script steps, using the Go To Record[Next] script steps.

You could put a portal to the second file in a layout in the first file and then loop through the portal rows.

If there's only one portal on the layout:

Go to Portal Row [ First ]

Loop

do what you need to for the row

Go to Portal Row [ Next, Exit after last ]

End Loop

If there's more than one portal on the layout:

Go to Field [ (a related field in the portal you want to go to ) ]

Go to Portal Row [ First ]

Loop

do what you need to for the row

Go to Portal Row [ Next, Exit after last ]

End Loop
