I've created a formula text HTML link using the a=er option as shown here:
to make use of the "&z="&Rurl() to take the user back to where-ever they came from before clicking on the button.
However, I want certain field to be autopopulated with preset values (hardcoded into the formula URL) - for example to change the status of the record.
I thought I knew how to do this, and merrily added (for example) '&_fid_10=1' thinking field ID 1 would automatically be set to '1' when the user opened the form - but alas not.
& "?a=er&rid=" & URLEncode([Record ID#])
& "&_fid_10=" & URLEncode("1")
I know how to do this using the edit record API, but that does not give me the option to return the user to where they came from (using the Rurl() solution) after they have made any further manual amendments and saved the record.
Am I just coding the URL incorrectly, or am I trying to achieve the impossible?
If I cannot do this using the a=er approach and have to use the Edit Record API, am I right in thinking that there is no equivalent to the "&z="&Rurl() solution for returning users to their original locations when using the API?
