If you are using the QuickBase API (say you are calling API_AddRecord using javascript to handle a form submission) and you get a sign in error like the one shown below:

<?xml version="1.0" ?>
- <qdbapi>
<action>API_AddRecord</action>
<errcode>22</errcode>
<errtext>Sign-in required</errtext>
- <errdetail>

Each API call accepts a parameter called "udata". This parameter is passed back in the XML response. You can create an application with a single client side XSL stylesheet that displays data differently depending on the value of the udata parameter.

Yes, the following two QuickBase URLS do the same thing:

6mpfsxfr?act=DBpage^pagename=pivot.xsl

6mpfsxfr?act=DBpage&pagename=pivot.xsl

Just replace the ampersands with carets.

Create a formula field of type "Formula URL - (Link)". Let's assume the first application is a list of action items, and the related application is a list of related files. Then you need to create a formula like the one below:

URLRoot() & "db/6k7gvdyw?act=API_GenAddRecordForm&_fnm_issue_id="
& URLEncode(ToText([Record ID#]))

Using IE8, the easiest way to create the HTML for a QuickBase data entry form is to use the following wizard:

Note: This wizard does not currently work with IE9.
