secondary entity referenced field value not displaying in view RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello, I've created a view for a primary entity, which joins to a secondary entity.  I'm referencing a field from the secondary entity in the view, but the field is not displaying consistently for the entity.

    The secondary entity is displayed as data in a subgrid in the primary entity.  When I double click on a row in the view for the primary entity, the entity opens, and the expected record is displayed in the subgrid.

    So why would the secondary entity data display in the subgrid as expected, without the referenced data value displayed in the view for the primary entity?  Any guesses about what might be wrong here?

  • Hello,

    From the descriptions it seem that you have a 1:N relationship for your primary and secondary entities. So, the fields of the secondary entity could not be shown in the view (Because there may be more than one related child and the view does not have this capability to show the children). As an alternative, you could use the reports.
