Title

Embed One Form In Another (same db file)

Post

1.  Hello, I am going in circles trying to do what I could easily do in Access.  I have created a browser list view of contacts.  I also have a detailed form of all fields.  What I am trying to do is create a form where the upper half contains the contacts detailed form and the bottom half displays the browser list of records.  The portal option does not allow me to point to another layout in the same db.

 

2.  If I can do that, then what i would like is, what ever record I click on in the browser list of records will select/display the detailed record's layout in the upper half.  For that functionality, will that require a script that reacts to selecting a record in the browser list displays the detailed record in the other layout?  And likewise, if I navigate up/down in the detailed record view, I would like it to auto-select the same record in the corresponding layout's browser list view.

 

I have tried for over a day to figure this out on my own to no avail.  Thanks for any assistance.
