HI Guys

I have made a change and am nolonger using UNID for PArent Child relationship

I am using field value(Numbers)

I have a script
Set prdoc = currentdb.GetDocumentByUNID(xxpr_link1) I need to now get the parent doc based on its prnumber
which is in the xxpr_link1

Set podoc = uidoc.Document
      Dim xxoldTotal1 As Double                        ' This PO when it was opened.
      Dim xxpr_link1 As String      ' Link to PR      from this PO.
      Dim prview As notesView
      Set prview = db.getView("VPRNUM")
      uidoc.Refresh
      
      xxoldTotal1 = podoc.oldTotal1(0)            ' Initial value of this PO saved in PostOpen
      xxpr_link1 = podoc.pr_link1(0)
      
      Set prdoc = currentdb.GetDocumentByUNID(xxpr_link1)

You haven't given us your true question or problem.

Just two lines that provide an indication:
   "I have made a change and am nolonger using UNID for PArent Child relationship"
and
   "Set prdoc = currentdb.GetDocumentByUNID(xxpr_link1)"

If xxpr_link1 does not represent a doc id, we're talking about a lookup by KEY.
Perhaps this one might help you out:

Set prdoc = <ViewInstance>.GetDocumentByKey(xxpr_link1)

Of course you neet to define <ViewInstance> first, like:

myView = currentDb.GetView("<name>").
Make sure to sort by key, just as you would for @DbLookup.
