Hi Heman !

Create a view for the second form with the key value sorted in the first column.

When the first form is being saved, in the query save event take the key fields and make a lookup for the second document from the view you have created.  Take the handle of the document and update the fields that you want to update.

If you dont have the handle for the second document then create the second document with what ever values you wanted it with.

Good Luck !

Hi Arun

I've got one last question.
I'm a starting programmer in LN, can you tell me if I can solve this with @commands or do I need to write in in script ?

Well,

If you have a handle for the document that you want to update you can do it with @Functions.
But if you are going to create a new document then you should go for LScript.

Good Luck !
