Multiple databases linking forms

Hi Folks,

I have multiple databases, each with a form. I would like to link the forms using buttons as in this tutorial for a Palm OS:

http://www.ddhsoftware.com/knowledgebas ... 167.73.142

I have not found any instruction or threads on how to do this on an iPhone and hoped it would be the same.

I have followed this tutorial several times linking fields in the databases properly, but when I go to assign an action to a button and choose Jump to Form and then choose the form, the only form that shows up is the one I am working with, and not the others I have linked to.

Is this platform specific feature, or is there something I need to do differently with a Mac and iPhone?

Thanks,
J.

Running
Mac OSX 10.11.2
iPhone 6s 9.3.1

Hi there,

The feature is a little different in HanDBase now than it was back in that Palm tutorial. There is a separate button action for jumping to a form in a different db. If you scroll down a bit you should see 'Jump to form in other db'- that's the one!

Make sure the button source is a link field if you want the jump to be relational to this db record. Hope this helps!
