This is not possible yet and the document need to import or manage the fields from the parent document.

    This is a great idea. It would give the opportunity to store data with relations, without any duplicate data.

    It is no problem, that it costs some performance, because the indexer would "save" the looked up data within the view index like today.


    Example of a contact database:

    A person is related to a company document. Only by having the company unid key reference within the person document, one could having all needed company fields within a person view!

    You are right, the issue is similar to dblookup, but my intention was to enable the command GetDocField in a column, and that is a diffent command. If dblookup would be possible this would help indeed.

    So you are essentially asking for something similar to @DBLookup in view column, but without the performance cost, right ?

    I think that there is a similar idea about the ability to do something like SQL "JOINT" statement in view, maybe these ideas can be combined together ?

    That is a great idea, and contrary to a @dblookup should not wreak havoc on performance imho.
