How to automate jump from repeating panel record to same record.....

How to automate jump from repeating panel record to same record.....

How to automate jump from repeating panel record to same record.....

... in other linked database.  I have a "Corporate.apr "(.dbf) with one to many relationship with "Companies.dbf". I have a form with a repeating panel listing related companies as a result. All fine, but how can I somehow 'jump' from a line record within the repeating panel to the fuller form view of the same company record in say "Companies.apr". I've used mini Buttons with associated macros inserted on repeating lines before, but not to do this. I just can't find how to (a) 'capture' the company ID concerned before (b) opening Companies.APR at that corresponding record. I'm very experienced in Approach and love it but have never had to use LotusScript to any extent. Is that what's needed here, perhaps ?(Why, oh why, did Lotus have to sell themselves to IBM who then dropped Approach/Smartsuite? I still haven't found anything that comes close !) Thanks
