R5, using a button to open a doc

R5, using a button to open a doc

On a view, if you double click a row, frm1 opens up with that data.  Is there a way to highlight and then click a button to open up another doc with the highlighted data?  The doc I would be looking to open via a button is frm2, and the data would be field1, field2, field3 and field 4. Please advise.

Thank you

RE: R5, using a button to open a doc

Use the button to call an agent (toolsrunmacro).

Set the agent to run on selected docs.

Code the agent to look at the selected doc, get some data off of it and then use that data to open another doc.

Haven't tried it but it could work.


RE: R5, using a button to open a doc

Use the "Form Formula" option under View objects in the ojects pane. Simply put "frm2" into this placeholder and this tells the view what form to use when opening documents. then just name the fields on the form the same as the ones in the document.
