Using formula URL, is there a way to open up a new record (in another table) in a popup box on top of existing window?  Or is the window.open embedded in QB so I can't control the window size?  i'd like for users to stay on the same primary form, but be able to quickly add records to this different table as they complete fields on the main form.  i don't want another tab but a popup window with that new record in it.

Hi,

There is an option in the field settings that can control the display options. You can set the button to display target in a new window. One thing to keep in mind is that your browser settings can override this. If the browser is set to open new popups in a new tab versus a new window then that will determine the action. 

Best,

Jeff
