Hi Appsheet,

You have a Child table C with columns/Fields. You create a nested form for this table C ref to its parent table P.

Question: Is it possibile to arrange the columns / fields in the nested form

so that it is in different order than the original order of the column in table C?

I have tried: If it was a normal form, you would just create a slice, arrange the order and link the form to that slice. I tried to create a slice and change the Ref_Rows formula to link to that slice but it did not work.

Thanks Guys!!

Generally not a good idea to use the REF_ROWS() function or to modify the virtual columns AppSheet adds automatically that use that function, as AppSheet manages those virtual columns automatically and may wipe-out any changes you make to them. Best to mark them Hidden and do your own thing.

The view used when you visit a Ref row (such as form an inline table) is determined by the table or slice targeted by the Ref. If you want the slice view used, change the Ref column target to a suitable slice instead of the table.

Another much less desirable option is to modify (or replace) the system-generated View ref action to reference a preferred slice or even a specific view.
