Hi,

Is it possible to update a field in the same database but different layout?

For example,

1)I've one database named Invoice.

2)Inside Invoice there are 2 different layouts,Delivery order(layout 1) and Quotation(layout 2)

3)Inside these 2 layouts,there is a field call "Job no".

4)I want to write a script to update the job no fr Delivery order and Quotation at the same time.i.e if i enter 1234 for job no in Delivery order ,1234 will automatically appear in the job no for Quotation.

Is that possible and how to do it?

Thanks you

Not to put you down, but your question indicates a lack of understanding of layouts. Layouts display the data that is in fields. If a field appears on more than one layout, it will have the same value. No need to use a script or anything.

Hi Vaughan,

I'm sorry.I guess I've not make myself very clear.I knew that I can use the same field for different layout but my problem is:

For the Quotation database,I have "item field" and "description field" but I don't want all the data in the Quotation db to go to Delivery order db as my customer may not buy all the items I quote to him/her.

Thus,I was wondering if it is possible to use script to control whatever I want to update to the delivery order.

I hope this is a clearer picture now.
