struggling with action for parent child relationship

  • 1.  struggling with action for parent child relationship

    My Scenario:

    Parent table--> Employee
    Child table--> Expenses.
    Each Employee has multiple expenses.

    On the parent form, I have embedded a child report which has a Formula-URL button on the report. On click of this button (which actually resides in the child table), I need to be able to update and save the parent form with any changes made on the parent form.

    Any help is appreciated..

    Is there a reason that you don't want to use the native green Save button at the top of the Parent record?

    The button on the child report performs certain actions in the child table. So with this button in the child report, I want to save the parent record for any changes and also perform certain actions on the child record
