    Default "Add a New Entry" ?

    I am creating an Basic Invoicing system using AlphaSports as a template.

    On the Invoice form, my users want to be able to add a new product/service on the fly that may not exist in the "Products" table.

    The first item displayed in the invoice-item brows is a "hyperlink" called "Add new entry to list...". when this is clicked, it takes you to a form that has the heading of the product entry form, but no fields are displayed.

    Question 1: is there some place where this form is "set"?

    Question 2: Is there a mechanism for enabling entry to the child table when the "Add new entry to list..." hyperlink is clicked?

    I am and old hand with Alpha 4 and use some Alpha 5 for reporting etc., but am a newbie at creating applications with it.

    Thanks for your help!

    Default Re: "Add a New Entry" ?

    Found it - its in the "Form layout to edit records" section of the "Lookup" tab in the "field rules."

    For whatever reason, by creating a new layout for entering data into the child table, it allows new records to be entered. The default form that came with alpha sports doesn't work - no fields appear, just the "header".
