Thanks, this helps but it does not…
Item form has link with table Item Manufacturer(table that holds all manufacturers and part numbers for the item).
I want to put field that will filter all components with part number field from item manufacturer table.

Same thing I can do with custom filter, but that takes some time to set up. This kind on filter is in use a lot.

Here is screenshot with filter. I just want to create a shortcut for that filter.

So what you want to filter is in diferent doctype.
I actual never don that one beofre. i will have to look into it and see what i can do.

If a filter is complex but you need to reuse it often, you can save and reuse it from the sidebar.

That will not help a lot since every item has different manufacturer part number. If is there any way to do with standard filter, that would be nice.
