I have a Many to Many relationship between Work Orders and Targets "AKA Facilities" , The work order table has a field called feeder that is lookup of the parent table of the Targets table. and the Targets drop down is dependent on the Feeder.  This is all working as expected but if I need to add a new Target and select the <Add a new Target> option in the drop down nothing happens

I want it to open the Add New Target Form  and populate the Feeder Field with the Feeder provided from Work orders. is there a way to override the <Add a new target...> action to open the correct form  and pre-populate the Feeder field?

As they say " been there - done it - bought the T-Shirt"

One in your life you need to tell your browser to allow pop ups from  Quick Base.  Depending on the browser there will be some indication that it is blocking a pop up.  In Chrome it is near the top right with a red x.

More complex than that the <add new 'object'> is working on all other forms where the relationship is one to many it just is not working on a many to many relationship

Sorry, I did not read your question carefully enough.  That would take one of Dan Diebolt's solutions.
