Not sure what you want but may be this, if you can drop sample qvw file it would be better.
Please find attached.

Kiran - Thanks for your help. I made some adjustments to the qvw you created and attached it here.
I want someone to see that Safety Event 1 was a fall, and when they call someone to discuss it, they record how they talked to them (via phone, meeting, etc.) and a summary of what was said. I want that information to be Saved /stored and the table box reloaded with that information appearing next to Safety Event 1's narrative in the Safety Event Table Box.
Then anyone could come back later and see the details about follow up on Safety Event 1. And also they could follow up on Safety Event 3, and record the details of that follow up.
Ideally, but not necessary right away:
- one wouldn't have to retype or cut/paste the SafetyEventID.
- one could associate more than one SafetyEventID to a single follow-up (because we might wait until we see a pattern of small problems before we decide to take action)

It is quite possible to do this with Input Boxes. But it takes a bit of work and you will also have to develop a way of saving the comments to file and reload these comments for each reload of the QlikView application.
However - I would advice you to have a very close look at Annotations which probably will serve your purpose very well. The best thing with that is that it works right out of the box - no need for development. The only thing is that you will have to run the application on a QlikView server - but I think you are doing that already as you seem to have a multi-user environment.
To find out more about Annotations you could search for "Annotations" and or "Social Business Discovery" on this forum, on Youtube or with Google.
I can't find my *.Shared file right now (I looked in the same folder as the application and see others there), and since nobody was responding to my response to kumar's response I started a new threadassociate variable from input box to specific row but nobody is responding to that either.
Can you give me a hint on some key words to search for other ways to store data entered in input box?
