Populating same data on a click of a button


I am creating a new app for everytime there is a new station that opens, there are part orders that get ordered. So basically when you click a button "New Station" a report will populate with all the part orders, suppliers and a lot more fields. Its about 300 line items. So when a new station opens,  the customer can click the button, the report will populate and they can edit the report if the part number has changed or price has increased. 

I have someone who created a similar app and used the below formula on the field (URL Forumla)

If([# of Reviewers] < 3,"javascript:void(copyMasterDetailButtonHandler('&sourcerid=169&destrid=" & [Record ID#] & "', 'bpii57gip'))") because it says (# of Reviewers] 

How do I use this formula in creating what I am looking for. 

Thanks in advance

  • So it sounds like you want some form of templating method to create a preset and then generate that preset whenever you have a 'New Station'.

    Couple ways you can do this but if you could tell me how you have set up your relationships/tables I can give you a better answer.

    The idea is that you set up a parent record as the source of your template, and using the copy feature you can recreate that parent record and include all the children records it has as well.
