    Hi, Niall

    I am using your script below for a button on click event, to move data from a row to another row.
    AllSub subform includes 2 subforms(SubformA and SubformB).

    Is it possible to move the data from SubformB only, SubformA data must remain the same as is!

    The script below moves data from both Subforms.

    Thank you

    var nIndex =AllSub.index;

    if ((nIndex + 1) < _AllSub.count)


    var nIndexFrom = nIndex;

    var nIndexTo = nIndex + 1;

    _AllSub.moveInstance(nIndexFrom, nIndexTo);




    this.caption.font.fill.color.value = "255,0,0";

      The issue is that the moveInstance() method will move the particular instance of the repeating object (AllSub). All of the contents of that instance of AllSub will be moved, including SubformA AND SubformB.

      The only option would be to set SubFormA and SubformB to be the repeating instances.

      Good luck,
