Any ideas, best practice, for a one to one form


Posted by MES5464 - Aug 30 ’13 at 11:52

I have a parent record and I want to create a child list that will have a one-to-one relationship (I don't want to bloat the parent list with too many fields). How can I display the fields from the child form on the parents edit form?

    Why don't you want to include these fields into the parent list? You can hide them from view or some types of forms so, users will not see them.

    Another option is to put the link in the parent form "Edit child form" and open child form in a dialog in edit mode when user clicks the link. But in my opinion, it doesn't look elegant solution.

    The reason I don't want to put the fields in the parent list is because there are so many. The parent list could be as many as 200 fields. It worries me to create a list with so many fields.
