Create a related record by script

Hi All

 

I'm trying to create a related record by the following script.

 

I have setup a unique ID as the Parent:PrimaryKey in the main db

 

 

Go to Layout [OriginalParentLayout (ParentTable)]

Set Variable [$Scan; Parent::PrimaryKey]

Go to Layout [AnyChildLayout (ChildTable) ]

New Record/Request

Set Field [ChildTable::Foreignkey; $Scan]

 

 

 

 

When it comes to setting the value in the "Set Variable" dialog what should I be entering?

 

Also, if there is a better way to accomplish this other than a portal, I would appreciate the help.

 

 

Thank you,

 

John
