Hi, When I use "copy the project" as an admin, all the records gets copied. But, it throws up the below error message, when an user try it. Any idea as to why it is happening. And, I could not find the table (bn3txf9mx) it is referring to. How do I find that information?

"There was an error copying the records. Contact the application administrator with the error details below. 
Error Details:
You do not have permission to add records to the table: bn3txf9mx"

Is it possible that one of the tables or fields in the app is referencing a table or field in another QuickBase app that the user doesn't have permissions for? I have seen that cause errors before.

The wizard is under Settings for the application, then App management and then 
Copy master & detail records

re: I see only "copy the table" not "copy the project" option

If you just want to copy a Parent record and not the children, then view any record and use the "More .." button.

I don't see a 'more' button when I am in a record. it just gives me save and close

then view any record and use the "More .." button.

You need to be in View mode,  not edit.

btw, if that More button does serve you needs, that can easily be made into a more obvious URL formula button for users to push when Viewing a record.

Note also that you can control which fields will copy forward, when using that More button method.  That is a field property checkbox setting,.

'view' and option 'more' works perfect for my need. Thank you everyone.
