I have the following tables.

Model, Main Category, Sub Category1, Sub Category2, Parts List,  ControlNumber.

I have a general search which I can choose by selecting Model, then the various categories and this is fine.  However, the other type of search is when someone enters a Control Number.

This number is made up of sections which will break down to the correct Parts List.


12345- Model
xxx - Main Category
yyy - Sub Category1
zzz- Sub Category2
B1 - Parts List form

The idea is that when a user enters the Control Number, they get directed the Parts List pertaining to to only that Model with its connected categories and subcategories.

Any ideas how to start?

Hi Michael,

I guess you want to create a search box with a button.
1- Get text box value once you click the button.
2- Hit doQuery API where use this text box value in qlist in order to filter.
3- so, once you click the button your actually hit an API that will give you the result base on your value.

I hope this will work. if not then will provide you the code.
