Pre-Purchase Question

Postby dunedon » Fri Dec 12, 2014 2:52 pm

Hi ... from everything I've read this is the perfect product for what I want to do ... I just have two final questions to see if it will do everything I'm looking for:

1) Can the Forms application be used to created secondary tabs that contain "grids" of values that have been selected from related databases? (ie: I have a tab, that contains address records that relate to the master customer record ... you can select and/or enter a new address record on the tab using a grid/list view interface)?

2) Can a calculated field on the master record update when related records, containing related $ values, are added or removed from the master record relationship?

Thank in advance!

Thanks for posting.

We appreciate your patience in HanDBase.

Regarding the first item, which would be what some call a pivot table, HanDBase does not support this at present.

Regarding the second item, relationships do recalculate on demand, so if you modify something in your child table and then open the parent table, related values will automatically update to reflect those changes.

Hope this information helps.
Kind Regards,
