'Cross-application relationship' cannot find the application 'Select an app'

  • 1.  'Cross-application relationship' cannot find the application 'Select an app'

    I feel a bit stupid but I can't make a 'Cross-application relationship' as my target application is not listed.

    I have two applications
    1) 'Global Locations' with a table 'Countries'
    2) 'Global suppliers' with a table  'Companies'
    (Companies : Countries = one : many)

    When I go to 'Global Locations' >> Settings > App properties there is a list with applications and a blue button 'Select an app'. BUT.....my app 'Global Suppliers' is not listed.
    When I click the button, the button dissapears and that's it.
    What is going wrong here.

    PS:I also tried it the other way around; create a relationship from 'Companies' to 'Countries' than the message appears that I need to make a crossreference and as I'm an admin it gives me to option to go to the 'Application Properties for Global locations'. And from there the same as above

    I did this before and it worked before :-)

    Please tell me what am I doing wrong?????

    This will work, at least it always works for me.  You need to go to Parent Table's  Application Settings / App Properties at the bottom of the page to allow the child to make a relationship.

    But then you actually build the relationship only from the child side.

    I simply don't see te child table in there and I can't either search for it.
    I'm an administrator of the Parent table,  though not the Owner/Managerof the parent table. Could that perhaps be the case?

    SOLVEDIt's a browser thing. Firefox and Chrome --> NO . M$ IE --> YES

    It was probably caused by a pop up blocker then.

    I suggest trying IE again and looking for an indication of a pop up being blocked.
