How can field values from the selected document in one database be passed to the new document (having those fields also) in another database? I have an outline entry link in the first database pointing to the second one. When I click that link, a new doc in the second database has to be opened, having those fields prefilled with the values from the first database.
In the properties of the form that creates the new document, on the Beenie tab, check the property "Formulas inherit values from selected documents." Then, in each field you wish set from the source, have the name of the source field in the default value formula. For example, the subject field default value would only need the word Subject. Remember, if you want the value from a field, just enter the field name without quotes.
