      Go to related record in external file?

      Post

      I am upgrading a database created in Filemaker 4 to 10, via 8.  It worked clumsily in 8 but many scripts no longer function in 10.

       

      I have two files, "Invoices" and "Contacts."  Records between the files are related by a matching filed "contact id." I want to create a script in "Invoices" which goes to its related record in "Contacts" and opens it in a specific layout.

       

      I can use a cumbersome work around, involving copying the "contact id", opening "Contacts," entering find mode, pasting, etc., but would like something easier.  

       

      Any ideas?
