      How to hide former records from the user sight during data entry

      Post

      Hello,

      When moving from a Parent table layout  to a Child table layout, for example using a button, the user has in sight all the records so far entered into the Child table layout. Is there any way, to hide all the so far entered records in the Child table layout from the user when he/she is just entering new records?

       For example, Parent ---< Child

      Let's assume that the Parent table has 250 records and the Child table has 500 records.

      We are in the process of creating Parent record 251 and once created we have to create 5 related Child records.

      The moment we move, through a button, from Parent record 251 to Child layout, the user has in sight 500 Child records. Is there any way to simulate that the Child table layout  is empty so that the user will only have in sight the Child records associate to Parent record 251?

      The reason why I am asking this is because for the user it is rather confusing and distracting seeing all the already entered records when he/she is creating the records related to a Parent record.

      Thanks
