Action button to Related Table View

I’m not sure if I’m using the right language, but I have some table relationships set up and working the way I want, but instead of listing the related tables, I would like a button that would go to the same spot as if I hit “view” on the bottom of the inline related table list. In the example below, there would be a button that said “Schools” and another for “District Directory”, but those inline reference tables would be gone.

Hopefully that makes some sort of sense! Thanks in advance.

The button would be an action of type App: go to another view in this app with a Target expression of:

LINKTOFILTEREDVIEW("Schools_Inline", [Related Schools])

Note that I’m guessing on Schools_Inline; you’ll need to identify or choose the desired table view.

That sounds like exactly what I need, but I am getting this error. The name of the related table is Schools_Inline like you guessed. I’ve tried it with multiple inline references and tables and keeping getting the same error. Thoughts?

It seems from examples that I could find that the [Related Schools] portion needs to reference something, but I’m not sure what it is supposed to reference?

Example: LINKTOFILTEREDVIEW(“Schools_Inline”, [Related Schools]=?something?)

Just not sure what to put the ?something? spot!

Well, I kept messing around 'till I got it to work. I’m not sure exactly why this works yet, but it is starting to make sense:

LINKTOFILTEREDVIEW(“Schools_Inline”, [Related Schools]=[DISTRICT].[Related Schools])

I think in this case [DISTRICT] is the name of the reference row? But I also have a table named DISTRICT. I think it would make more sense if I had a better naming convention.

If time allows for someone to explain what is going on in the syntax, I’d love to hear it just to grow my understanding. @Steve Thanks for getting me pointed in the right direction, as always!

I’m not sure why that works either, haha. I would have gone with:

LINKTOFILTEREDVIEW(“Schools_Inline”, [District]=[_THISROW])


@Marc_Dillon That worked, too, but your solution is much more straightforward and I think I can actually understand why it works. It looks like I somehow figured out a way to do it a roundabout way but still end up at the same result. I have a few more of these to put into this app and I’ll use your expression syntax for sure!
