Save Record In Different Table?

Recommended Posts

I'm sitting on "Layout A" which is showing records from "Table A". I would like to create a record in "Table B" without having to leave "Layout A".

Any chance of that happening?

Thanks,

Mel

Can you put a portal that shows records of Table B inside that Layout A ?

I'm afraid I don't have the room. Is it possible to place one portal on top of another?

You CAN create a related record "remotely" using a relationship with creation of related records allowed. You can do this manually (using a portal) or by a script.

But the requirement not to leave the parent layout makes little sense to me. Where will you input the data for the related record? Suppose it's in global fields - well, a script can freeze the window, load the parent record ID into a variable, go to the child table, create a new related record, set its fields, commit the record and come back without the user knowing anything about it.

Hey!

It' possible through the script,

1. First, create a script to move to the table b

2. Then do whataver the things there, through the script

3. then move again to table a's layout
