RE: How to add multiple line for a custom record at the same time

Hi experts,

I create  2 custom records for purchase requests: one for header (parent)  and one for item detail (child). However, for the child record I  cannot add multiple lines of item at the same time, only can add one by one. Please help me if there is any exits for this issue.

Thanks so much !

Create a parent/child relationship between the parent and child custom records so that you can treat the child as a sublist from the parent.

While Custom Child Record Sublist Creation with SuiteScript is geared towards suitescript, it provides the most in depth illustration of how relationship works and how to set it up

Thank Battk. I created the parent and child relationship before. The purchase request is running successfully. My issue here is I cannot add multiple item/multiple line of item at the same time to the child record, only add one by one. For instance, when creating the standard purchase order, we can use Add Multiple button to add a lot of items at the same time or if you use Search in the Item field of PO item line, you can also use Add Multiple button.

There is no equivalent to the add multiple button. Theoretically you can try scripting it, but it would be a fair amount of work and would not be very quick.
