Problem reading child records


Ok, I'm very new to Filemaker so please bear with me!  I have programmed in a few other languages, so I embarrassed to admit I am having a hard time with this.

I am duplicating a record and also wanted to duplicate the child records.  The problem I'm having is that when I read the related child records I had to create a form with the child records on them (to get: Go To Related Record to work).  It works fine except I don't want to form layout to display!  It overlays the current screen.  I just want the script to be run in the background.

Am I doing something wrong here?  Is creating a layout with the child data on it how everyone else would handle this?  It seems like there would be an easier way.
