Can a New Record script step create a new record in a different database?

Hi people,

More questions I'm afraid... Is there a possibility that a script that calls an external script which has a create new record step create a record in another database?

I'm asking this because I am trying to squash a bug in my script(s) where I am trying to create a new record in a file but ends up creating a record in a different file? Anyone heared of any problems like this? Just incase that I'm looking too hard for a solution where there is "no" solution with the script I've already made.

Thank you. If needed, I'll post my script(s) to show what I'm trying to do in detail and to show you where it's going wrong.

Yes, you can create a new record in another file using a in the current file. You do it exactly the way you said, call and external script in the other file which contains the "New Record/Request/Page" script step.

There are cases where if a relationship exists between two files (File1 and File2) AND the relationship is defined to "allow creation of related records" AND data is entered into a related field in File2, that a records will be automatically created.
