Home Forum Parent-Child Forms Auto-update parent with child data Re: Auto-update parent with child data



Hi Dennis,

The parent form does get submitted.

The idea behind the auto-refresh is to give the user a running total as they are submitting each child costing form.

I also have the refresh process built into the submit button of the parent.

I’ve tried a couple of other events like “table changes field data”, but this relies on the user changing something else in the table. If they are submitting the last costing form, the process is not called.

It can also lead to an infinite loop as I found out the hard way.

What I was hoping for was an event that triggers when the parent form is re-displayed after each child form is submitted.
