Return Data To

I am trying to get a recently migrated system (From 6.52) to function in a manner similar to the original.  I have replaced the simple Form Open Related commands with the combinations of Document Open, SetVar and GetVar, SelectionFilter successfully but I cannot see how to replace the functionality of the Return Data To command in the 'related' form.

Re:Return Data To

I have got as far as this statement in the button that returns to the original form (MaterialIssuesView):-

SetVar("BuildNo4",BuildNumber) + ReturnToParentDoc( ) + DocumentClose() + DocumentOpen("MaterialIssuesView")

What i am trying to do is close MaterialIssuesView (Via DocumentClose) and then open it again so that the dummy field that accesses the BuildNo4 variable is executed, but what i am getting is another copy of MaterialIssuesView opened (The latest copy displays the information that i require).  I have tried putting Waits in the midst of the line but that just causes Exception Errors.

Hi Peter

Have you tried DocumentCloseName()

I think this should solve your problem.

Hi Josef

Thanks for that, it seems to have made the difference!

I had looked at DocumentCloseName but why i chose not to use it i do not know.
