Table 1 has a layout with 2 tabs, a table 1 tab and a table 2 tab
Keep in mind that both tabs are based on table 1. You cannot base the individual tab panels on different tables. Any references to fields in Table 2 will be controlled by the relationship between Table 1 and Table 2. Many FileMaker systems create the illusion of tab panels based on different tables but they often are actually buttons that take you to different layouts, each based on a different table.
Thanks, that explains things. Both tabs are built off table one.
