What is the best way to make a new record in another database?

I want to make a button, resulting in first checking if the record doesn't allready exist, if no: copying the contents of a field from database A into a field in Database B, creating a new (related) record.

I have a situation where I have a contact database, People. Some of the People are also clients, so I want to keep additional info on them in a separate DB, CCRD.fp5 (CCRD = Confidential Client Record Database). If a person in People.fp5 is a client, I click on a button to see their client record. If a client record doesn't exist, one is created and I'm taken to it.

The CCRD relationship is just bewteen the ID in the People.fp5 and ID in CCRD.fp5. The first script is in people.fp5. The second is in CCRD.fp5.

if [isempty(ccrd::ID)]

   set field [ccrd::gCurrentPersonID]

   perform script [external: ccrd.fp5 NewClient]

end if

Go To Related Record [CCRD]






And The NewClient script is just:




New Record / Request

Set Field [iD, gCurrentPersonID]

Once you've got a related record created you can mave data between them as you need.
