This is one of those issues that can be tough to diagnose from a distance.
If you haven't already done so, place your PeriodStart, PeriodEnd fields directly on your employee layout where you have your portal to timeworked. Then add the Date field to the timeworked portal rows. Check for anything out of the ordinary that might be appearing in any of these fields--that might give you a clue.
thanks for the advice, it seemed that I somehow had more than one employee associated with the same name (i THINK thats what happened) and I had set the boundaries to be this week so that data kept showing up. Making another portal to view the associated employees helped me see the problem.
You should link to employee records by a serial number field--not a name--and you've just illustrated one of the reasons why this is so. :smileywink:
