      Hello, All,

      I have a database with a summary layout and added a new layout. For simplicity, I added the fields of the new layout to the summary table and added a button to access the new layout from the summary layout with a simple script of "Go to layout".

       

      When one tried to enter data into the new layout fields, a filemaker error message showed up and read

      "This record cannot be modified in this window because it is already being modified in a different window."

       

      What went wrong? How do I fix it? Thank you for your response!
