How can I link from a source table to the same record in its connected table? When I try replacing r=x with rid=[Record ID], it says no such record exists.

For example, the record in the source table in App 1 had Record ID# 12345. In the Connected Table in App 2 there is a Record ID field also equal to 12345. When I try to directly link to that record using a URL like this, it says no such record exists.

What us the Key field of the connected Table?   If you know what it is then instead of rid=xxxxxx you use key=xxxxxx

Thank you! That worked!

It looks like when you create a quickbase to quickbase connected table, the key field is named "Record ID" but it's not the same as the normal "Record ID#" field. key= worked great!
