The Zoom Across functionality allows you to zoom quickly from the current record to a related record in a different window. For example, if you are looking at an order, you can zoom across to the associated invoice, shipping docs and payments.

Restrictions

The default Zoom Across functionality allows you to zoom from one record to a destination record only if the destination table references the source table. In other words, you can zoom from an Order to an Invoice only if the Invoice references the Order in its Invoice Header. This restriction can be extended to cross multiple tables. See Extending Zoom Across for more information.

Description

To use Zoom Across, open the source window, select the source record and then click the Zoom Across icon file:ZoomAcross24.png or use the Application Menu Go→Zoom Across (where used).
