I am creating a DB with two forms (by request). One where the DBAs store their database information and the other where systems admins record their server info. What I would like to do is have an embedded view on the server forms that shows what information the DBA has recorded on their form for that particular server (if applicable.) For example, DBA puts in info about server Johnny1 in their form and then Johnny1's server form shows the Database info in the embedded view. Any code ideas?
I would suggest using one form and using Hide Formulas or Access Controlled sections to control who edits what. If that is not possible, simply make both of your two forms contain all the data in the collective forms. You can then make the admin fields read-only on the DBA form and the DBA fields read-only on the admin form. Then you could use workflow, or a form formula to determine which form is opened by a particular user. I believe, if I understand you correctly, that embedding a view for displaying the single-doc data you want to display is overkill and actually would be feature-prohibitive.
