Parent Form Functions

If you're using sub-forms, WorkMobile provides a set of functions that can be called within the sub form in order to fetch data from the parent form.

For example, you may have a parent form which is a sales order, with a sub form containing the repeating order detail lines. Within the parent form, you may have a discount % field. You could then call the PARENT function to fetch the value of this field within the sub form and then use this within a calculation.
