Having Issues Adding Records & Carry Forward Customer ID when adding new record
I created a filemaker database containing 4 layouts:
- Bio Demo
- Hair Color
- Perm Wave
Each layout is a record and within the record I have several fields.
The Bio Demo is where the user will mostly be. In this layout I have a Tab Control consisting of 3 tabs (Hair Color, Perm Wave, and Skin). For each tab, I inserted the portal control so it displays related records associated to the Customer ID and to its respective record. On the first tab "Hair Color" I added a button at the bottom "Add Hair Color". When clicked, it takes me to the Hair Color layout and I'm able to enter the information I need. (1) First Issue is that it doesn't carry over the Customer ID, I have to enter it (which is a problem). When I go back to the Bio Demo layout, I can see that record in the tab.
When I click "Add hair Color" a second time, it takes me back to the Hair Color layout. I have to enter the Customer ID because again, it doesn't carry over the ID. But when I create the record, and I go back to the Bio Demo layout, the second record is not shown on the Hair Color tab. But if I click on this second record, it takes me directly to the second record.
Of course, after I get this tab working the way it should, I will need to duplicate this on the other tabs.
I hope someone can help or point me in the right direction. I will attach images
