Text as Key Field.


I'm using a Text as a Key Field - [Charge Code]

The issue I'm running into is that whenever i change the [Charge Code], it disconnects the child records associated with it. How can i make it so that the Related Charge Code for the child record updates when the Parent's Charge Code is changed?

  • You will need to change the Key field of the table back to [Record ID#].  Then he will go to the relationship and edit the field properties for related charge code field to set it to have a proxy field of the charge code.  

    QuickBase typically handles this very well maintaining all the linkages but if you've never changed a Key Field before you might want to make a copy of your app and play around with it there to get comfortable with the concept
