model driven app: auto update "field A" depending on value of "field B"

Hi, I am a newbie to using model driven app.

 

What I need to do is this:

 

I have an entity ("entity A") that tells us the reference scores assigned to each part of a question (each part = a field in the entity). Each question is an item in entity A

 

I have another entity that is a form that allows examiners to input scores for each candidate (entity B). This form has a field that tells us which question it is in entity A.

 

Is it possible for fields with same names in entities A and B to have the same values, depending on the value of the "question item" inserted in entity B? (similar to having a vlookup function in excel)?

 

Thanks for your help!

 

KK

You can use a calculated field on a child entity (the N side of an N:1 relationship) to take a value from a parent entity, which may be what you're looking for

Re: model driven app: auto update "field A" depending on value of "field B"

Hi, thx for the quick response. However, as I am rather new to this, can you give me a bit more details as to how I can actually go about this? eg how to set child and parent entity?

 

thx again
