    You’ve created a database with a portal to related records when you come to find out that the duplicate records menu command doesn’t duplicate the portal records. As a result of using the menu command you end up with a duplicated record with an empty portal. This isn’t what you expected to happen. So how do you get FileMaker Pro to also duplicate the related records? This task can now be performed with a single script using FileMaker Pro 7.
