Dev problem - automatically populating fields
Posted on 2000-04-10
This may be an easy question, but for novices like me, it's one I have lost sleep over...
Let's say there is a field on a parent document called ParentField. On one of its child documents, there is a field that we'll call ChildField. As users of the DB create child documents, they'll have to add some value into ChildField. That's the scenario...
Here's the question... How can I have ParentField automatically populate itself from whatever is in ChildField? Or I guess you can ask, how can I get ChildField to pass it's value to ParentField?
