Is it possible for a Button to lookup a field in a related database?


Recommended Posts

Hi I have been trying to figure how to make a Button lookup a field in a related database, can this even be done?

I have one database with an ID of say 123 and I want a button to open and find a record in another related database that as that same ID, but I just cant figure it..

Can anyone help me?

Sounds like you could create a relationship between your two tables based on ID-to-ID, then have your button call a script:

Go to the related record (new window, set it to something like 2400 pixels to the right - that way you don't get any screen flash)

Sets a variable (or a global) to the value you want to get from the related record

Close the new window

Set your primary record to the value in the global/variable
