[Content] is a narrative description of a technique
Here is any easy way to set up the formula URL field that when clicked will run your JavaScript.

1) Create two user defined variables named [script] and [/script] with the following definitions:

[script]=

javascript:$.getScript(gReqAppDBID+'?a=dbpage&pagename=

and
[/script]=

');void(0);

2) Create a user defined page named myscript.js and place your JavaScript in this page. You should probably just put an alert statement in this page to start with to test you have everything set up correctly.

3) For every place you want to invooke the script write a formula URL with the following definition:
[script] & "myscript.js" & [/script]

You probably want to configure this field so it displays as a button.

4) If you need another formula URL field that runs JavaScript just repeat steps 2 and 3 above as your application already has [script] and [/script] set up.

When you bring additional fields into a conversion, Quick Base often finds inconsistencies. For example, say you're converting your Companies column into its own table. One company, Acme Corporation, has offices in New York, Dallas and Portland. So, when you add the City column to the conversion, Quick Base finds three different locations for Acme. A single value in the column you're converting can only match one value in any additional field. Quick Base needs you to clean up the extra cities before it can create your new table. To do so, you have one of two choices:

  • If you want to create three separate Acme records (Acme-New York, Acme-Dallas and Acme-Portland) click the Conform link at the top of the column.
  • If the dissimilar entries are mistakes (say Acme only has one office in New York and the other locations are data-entry errors) go back into your table and correct the inconsistencies—in this case, changing all locations to New York. Then try the conversion again.
