copying the current record to another database

Question asked by LoriE on Apr 27, 2016
Latest reply on Apr 29, 2016 by LoriE

I have numerous databases using Filemaker pro 13

 

"Projects"- has project number and project name fields

"Meetings"-has project number and project name fields

I can currently enter a project number into the project number of  the meetings
details layout and the project name will be looked up from the projects database.

 

What I ultimately would like to do is to find one project in
the projects database, click on the button named "meetings" and have the project
number and project name show up in the meetings database (in the respective fields) when the projects
database switches to once the meeting button is clicked.

 

I have been trying to use go to related record but I am now
thinking there is no related record just a new meetings details record with the project number and name being brought in from the projects database. One project can have many meetings.

 

If anyone can point me in the right direction I should be
able to figure it out, just need to know if I need a script or something else.

 

Thanks,

L
