There is a table relationship between Sections table and Table B, Sections is the parent or master.  In a Table B form there is a dropdown that the user can select Browse all sections and choose the parent Sections record.  I do not want users to be able to create new sections from the child table Table B.  Therefore, how do I remove the "Add New sections" button:

Users in Roles which do  not have permissions to add records, will not be offered the Add button.

ie, set the Role permissions to  not allow ADD.
Hi Jeff,

You can restrict them to add records in the master table. You can do so through the role settings.

App Settings->Roles-> then, uncheck the add record option.



Do let me know if you need any further help.

Thanks,

Gaurav
Ohh Mark! you have already given the answer when I was typing and I saw it when I saved my one.
Well, better two responses for Jeff, than none.  :)
Haha...that's correct. :)

Thanks, that worked.
I have a very similar question so I'd like to build on this question rather than start a whole new one. I want to allow the user to add records to the parent table. I just don't want them doing it from the record picker embedded in an add/edit operation to a child record. Also, when "Add a new record" is selected from the record picker no prompt is made to create the new parent and the child record is saved with a value of "_other" in the related parent field.
