I need help creating a button to save on a form to display a report link.  I would like to remain on the form after save and the report link will display after the Save URL button is clicked

I am not really understanding the question.  Do you mean that you want to have a field on the form which is a link to the record that you just saved?  or do you really mean a Report Link, which is a specific field type in QuickBase, often, but not always, used in relationships.  If you mean a Report Link, then please explain further.

Do, you simply want an extra Save button just like the one at the top right? is that it?

Greetings!

Yes, you can save the record and remain on the page.  If you know javascript, this is easy to do.  You can use DoSave() to save the record and stay on the current page.  After the Save completes, you can open a popup or unhide a element to display your report.  This is not at all bad to set up.

Hope this helps!
