Entering Information from Another Form

Sometimes the Search button next to a Code/Description field takes you to another form to look for values, rather than to an LOV. You can select information from the “called form,” and return it to the current field.

To enter information in a field from a called form:

  1. Click the Search button to launch the called form. If an Option List appears, click the desired option to display the form. Otherwise, the form appears automatically.
  2. If the form opens in query mode, enter your search criteria. From the Query drop-down menu select the Execute Query option. The form displays matching values. Otherwise, the form displays available values.
  3. Scroll (if necessary) to the desired value on the called form and double-click the value.
  4. The called form closes, and the selected value is returned to the field.
