place a button on form b. Write on When-Button-Pressed
post;
call_form('a');


Commit changes in form a.

Hi

We call a form from within other form using call_form.
Post does not commit records to database. all the updates will be saved on commit_form. do this

from form a
call_form('b.fmx',hide,do_replace,no_query_only);

update form b

press ok button (if any there with a commit_form line;)
and exit;

it will update.

Why you would want to do this I have no idea!

Yes, you can do the 'post' and then 'exit_form(no_commit)' but if you have changed the records that were being displayed in Form A you will have to requery when you return so that you can see the updated values.

Have you considered putting the extra information that you have programmed into Form B into a second window or canvas in Form A?
