automatically creating of subdatasets?

Hello alltogether,

I´m not sure if I am thinking along the right way, but is it possible to create a dataset in a detailtable (subDBs) while creating a new one in the Mastertable? Would it be possible to do that over more than 2 levels of detailtables?
If there´s no way, how can I avoid the problem of having a fixed order of creating datasets first in all Mastertables and than in all subdatabases via opening the respective forms one after the other?

Thanks for all ideas,


RE: automatically creating of subdatasets?

Hello Heiko!
I'm sorry but I've lost something in the translation. Do you mean you would like to create records in a "foreign keyed" table that would be related to records in a "primary keyed" table before the record in the primary is created?
Thank you,


RE: automatically creating of subdatasets?

Hi Gord,

thanks for your interest!
No, of course I won´t do that. I´d rather like to automatically create records in all tables that are linked to the Mastertable (with ref. Int.). I´m talking of two or more mastertables converging to the same subtable. I want to avoid to manually create records in all Mastertables before I´m able to store something in the subtable. I´m not sure about that table architecture, but so far I´ve got no better idea.

Thanks again,
