Tracking changes

Dear All,

I'm trying to track changes in a particular part of a database.

Table: TableBooks

Fields:

- BookID

- BookStatus (In/Out only)

- BookName

I need to create a table which records when each book is taken out and returned. I had some success in creating a table BookStatus:

- BookStatusID

- BookID

- BookChange (timestamp, new on creation)

I've linked the tables: BookID -- BookStatusID

I've created a little script, which is triggered on BookStatus change:

Go to Layout ["BookStatus"]

New Record/Request

This creates a new record, and the requisite timestamp. However I need to also import from the Book table the BookID (and eventually some other fields which are non-permanent and need to be recorded at the time), because otherwise I will know when a book was taken out or returned, but not WHICH book - and that would defeat the exercise.

Thanks!

I think it should be BookID = BookID. If you allow the relationship to create records on the BookStatus side, you can enter new data directly into a portal to BookStatus placed on a layout of Books.
