Force a new screen to show components for the sheet I need?

Question: how can I force a new screen to show info from the table that I need?

Sometimes when I am linking to a new sheet I can’t get it to show the info from the table I need. For instance; I am creating a task for a user but when I try to add components to the screen it will show the user fields rather than the tasks fields. How do I force it to show components for the tasks sheet (in this instance)?

Sorry if this is a super simple solution but I can’t seem to get it to do what I need.

Thanks for any help.

Welcome! It sounds like you need to change the Source for your tab.


You would think it was that easy, but I already knew to do that and that doesn’t seem to be the problem. But I think that can only be done when you are creating a new tab whereas I am creating a new screen using a button. I don’t know if there is something I can add into a custom action to force it to see the correct sheet or what.

So again, to clarify, this is for a new screen from a button, not a new tab and it doesn’t seem to have a way to identify the sheet I need to use for the components.

The Show New Screen action should also allow you to select the source Sheet/Table. Set it on the button action. Not when you are already in the screen.

How do I do that? I was trying to figure that out.

Select your button component and it should be right below the action once you select Show New Screen as the action on the button.

Ok, I’ll give that a go. Thanks, Jeff.
