I have provided a button to add a record on my dashboard.  This button is inevitably linked to a table.  My issue is that the record I wish to create needs to be added on a parent table form as grid edit.  Currently it takes me to the child record in a form for the child table.  The reason I am trying to achieve is to allow users to copy and paste into a grid edit child report instead of having to work on each line.  Wondering if there was an option to do so.

Arshad,
Your question is not clear.

Are you asking how to take a user to an Add Parent form where they can create the Parent at the same time they are Grid Edit copy and paste to create children?

Well, then just take them to the Add Parent record URL and they will be able to also enter the children right on the grid edit form so when they save the parent, he children will also save and get properly attached to the parent.
