Title

Making new related records

Post

I have coverted my FM files from FM 4.1 to 8.5

I use these files for a customer database and make my quotations and contracts on it.

in the original structure i copied and pasted key fields like company ID from one database to the other.

noW IN 8.5 I still use the seperate original databases:

company.fm->contacts.fm->request.fm->quote.fm->contract.fm

2 questions:

1. Is there an easy way to convert these seperate databases (incl layouts) to tabels within 1 database

2. If i do not use copy+paste ID's what is the way to make new record in another database.
so e.g. make new contact from company database.

Is this don e by variables? How does this work?
