I have a QuickBase application. I want to show the external website results based on the data I give in QuickBase. How can I do this? What procedures I need to follow?

For example, I give the origin & dest airport, date & time in my QuickBase, any external website like kayak.com results should be shown here like the available flights & prices for the date, time & places I give in QuickBase

You would basically need to create a formula-url field that will use the external websites API or Query string to create a custom URL that is dependent on the variable that you provide.

For example; to build a query url for quickbase you use things like. 

~URLRoot() & "db/" & Dbid() & "?a=q&query={318.EX."&[Filtering Criteria Field]&"}~

where 318 is the field ID you are searching that matches
