Link data from one DB to another

Postby Mnbvoj » Mon Dec 11, 2017 3:38 pm

I'm wondering if it's possible to copy data from a couple of fields of one DB to the same fields in another DB. I enter data in one DB, and have a field that if selected, opens another DB. Some fields in the 2nd DB are the same as the 1st DB. Can't the info I installed in the 1st populate those fields in the 2nd? I've tried Link, Linked & Relationship, without any luck.

Hi there,

Thanks for your post. The DB Popup field is the one that is closest to what you describe. It creates what looks and behaves like a text field but when you select the drop down button it shows you the list of records in a related table. Tapping a record in that table will copy the value for the field you assigned in the setup into the first database. And there is a group feature where you can set up a group of db popup fields that all get copied when one is selected.

More info here;

Hope this helps!
