Relating field values across layoouts


I'm new to Filemaker, my experience is Access, DBase ans SQL Server so please excuse any errors with definitions.

I am building an simple application. Main table hold a Case and there will be multiple Transactions added to each case.

I have created a Layout/Form for the Case table and I want to put a button on the Form to create payments.

I can see how to move to the Layout/Form for the entry of a Transaction but have not been able to see how to automatically pick up the Case Reference from the Case Form and add it to the Transaction Form.

I have tried scripts using Set Field but the field remains blank.

Any ideas?
