    Hi Antonina,

    Here's a KB article that outlines what you described:

    ooooo, I'm almost there! Just it opened the "add new form". how can I open another #19 form to edit current record I'm in?
    I have now: URLRoot() & "db/" & [_DBID_THE_CORE] &"?act=API_GenAddRecordForm&_fid_xx="&[Record ID#] &"&dfid=19" &"&z=" & Rurl()

    To go to the edit record form replace API_GenAddRecordForm above with er:

    URLRoot() & "db/" & [_DBID_THE_CORE] &"?act=er&_fid_xx="&[Record ID#] &"&dfid=19" &"&z=" & Rurl()

    The er stands for Edit Record.

    Give this one a try:

     URLRoot() & "db/" & Dbid() & "?a=er&key="&[Record ID#]&"&dfid=19"
