Synchronize lookup windows with the window from which they are called.
You can limit the number of queried records in lookup windows using values in the calling window as search conditions. If the lookup window pops up and performs a query, the values of the corresponding foreign key columns are copied and entered as query conditions.
When to use
Set the Synchronize Lookup property to All Editable Fields for those lookup windows that are often queried from foreign key fields in another window.
To synchronize a lookup window with the window from which it is called:
The lookup will synchronize with all foreign key fields that are either non-displayed or non-enterable. This is the default.
The lookup will not be synchronized with the calling window.
The lookup will synchronize with all foreign key fields that have been updated by the user.
Lookup windows cannot be synchronized from joined column fields in the calling window. Also, if the user performs a query in the lookup window, synchronization with the calling window is not applied.
