Unanswered: how to pass data from one form to another
okay so am new to brilliant database and I have the following
in the first form I have a field where I can choose COMPANY NAME
and many other fields that I should fill up such as quantity price and so on
I also have a button that says issue invoice
when I press this button a new form opens
in this form I want the company name [selected in form one ] to be shown plus the price and the quantity
[ for each company the price and quantity are different ]
I would normally set a global variable to required field value with a script triggered by select form or comfirm edit of form (or use both). This value is then available to any other form. Attach script to your button to set a field to this global as well as any other needed actions.
Not sure as to how you have set up price/quantity but often can use lookups or query/global variable.
I would recomend any BD user to master the "for each record" cycle as this is a very useful function to manipulate data. You must always ask yourself how will BD "know" which record to act on - the above cycle is often the key to this.
I can not get the downloaded files to open. they download and unzip fine, but give an error message of invalid header. tried several combinations of browers and unzippers without luck. using BD 9.42 Pro. I have had this issue before and using Chrome to download the files was a workaround for me. but that no longer works...... I hope its not the version i'm using. not really ready to upgrade at this point in time
