pass variables/fields in document chaining

Hi all,

I am using document chaining to call my app 2 from app 1.

I need to pass the value of a field from app1  to app2, the field does not exist in App2.

Please suggest a way to pass that field.

Ex : I have member_ID and member_name in App1

App 2 has only member_ID.

When App1 calls App2 I need to pass the value of Member_name to be "displayed" only App2.

Changes to selections wrt Member_name not applicable on App2.

Pleae suggest a way to do this.

Hi sonikajain‌,

For the field selections to be passed, the fields and variables should be present in both the Apps.

  1. You need to load the Member_name in App 2 as well. If its a small table/excel, load it as Load Script or create a simple Inline table with values.
  2. You can try loading the particular Member_name QVD (if you have as well, or from the main QVD).
  3. You need to select the desired values in the Member_name field (may be using Triggers, OnOpen or something like that). If you don't want that object to be displayed in sheet, hide it.
  4. Then do the document chaining from App 1 to App 2. the selections. Those will be passed.
