Title

Finding and sorting items in a portal

Post

Hi

I'm making a Rolodex. The main layout has fields for all the name/address info and a portal that lists all of the contacts.

There is a table called Rolodex and a duplicate table (Rolodex_2).  Rolodex:(autoserial) <-- ≠ --> Rolodex_2:(text field)

I want to insert all the letters of the alphabet as buttons. When the user clicks "H" the first last name that starts with H appears at the top of the portal but all of the other contacts remain. Sort of like the contacts app on an iPhone.

I'd also like to have a find field. The user types "Joe" and clicks a button and all of the Joes show up in the portal. This one seems easy but I'm stuck..

Thanks!
