    Help! Multiple Line Items needed



      Help! Multiple Line Items needed


      Hey y'all. I am relatively new to the Filemaker scene. I do not know what a portal is or how to contruct one and I've seen this as a solution method.

      Issue at hand: I have an invoice that the customer purchases 2-3 items on and it prints the line items separately. How can I generate an invoice that has this all on the same page with the grand summary?

      On my invoices, I have the bill to and ship to information, the product ID, product name,  price, taxable, quantity, subtotal, shipping, and total.

      ANY HELP will be much obliged.

      Thank y'all kindly!!!!!

          First look up "portal" in FileMaker help. It's got enough details that I'd prefer you read that entry before I try to describe it fully.

          Then learn how to define relationships between tables as you need such a relationship in order to get the portal to work.

          Then take a look at this simple invoicing demo file that uses the portal for data entry but which does not use it for printing the invoice: http://fmforums.com/forum/showpost.php?post/309136/

          And after that, feel free to post follow up questions in Post A Answer below if that is not enough to get you going.
