Linking Question

Postby rnrosen » Mon Feb 08, 2010 10:44 pm

I wrote a billing database. The customer list uses a field with customer's name to link to the bills database. Is there a way to automatically carry over other fields besides customer name? In other words, when I click on the link field of the customer databas,e and a new bill opens, I would like the bill to show customer name, location, customer number and possibly other fields captured from the parent database.

Hi there,

Indeed there is, using the relationship field type. Rather than try to explain it through this posting, I'm going to direct you to some articles we've written on them that should hopefully explain how this works. If you have any followup questions, feel free to post them here!

Here are the links:

Hope they help!
