You can use column links to pass variables from one form(QBE form) to another form but not a master detail form. atleast I have not had sucess trying to pass variables to master/detail form. To follow up on a similiar thought has anybody had luck passing variables from a QBE form to multiple forms? For example, depending on choices on intial form, i need to bring up different forms for the different choices. The column link only alows you to link to one other form, from what i can tell. Has anybody else had other experience?
