Sorry in the delay in getting back to you about the other two posts I replied to, on my list of posts to respond to.
As I mention before there is a 25 or 50 row limit in IWP depending on wether you are in list view or table view, but you want more than that you can get around this with a portal.
If you want to show all records you just need to create a Cartesian join, from one instance of your table to another, a Self join.
If you want a specific found set this is a bit more work but doable with a global MultiKey field instead in your self join.
To go down the MultiKey route, to start you want to create a field called MultiKey_Listing in this case and make it a global and then in teh relationship graph duplicate the table you are working with and call it SJ_YourTableName and link then together
YourTableName -- = -- SJ_YourTableName
Now palace a portal on the layout based on SJ_YourTableName and set it up as you would like it to display.
Now is the tricky bit.
You need to create a script to populate the MultiKey with a list of ID's for the records you want to display, either a specified search or user search, or both. But the script should look something like this:
Enter Find Mode [ ]
# YOUR SEARCH CRITERIA
Perform Find [ ]
If [ Get ( FoundCount ) > 0 ]
# Generate MultiKey
Go to Record/Request/Page [ First ]
Set Variable [ $mKey ; $mKey & "¶" & YourTableName::UniqueID ]
Go to Record/Request/Page [ Next ; Exit after last ]
Set Field [ YourTableName::MultiKey_Listing ; $mKey ]
Go to Layout [ List Layout (YourTableName) ]
And that should do the trick, you would want to modify it to suite your application, you can run the whole process from a separate table the global MultiKey and portal does not have to be the same table the data is in.
Also the portal may look a bit strange in IWP, just needs a bit of customising to get it to look how you require.
I hope this helps.
please dun apologise. You have been most helpful in solving problems that I face with FileMaker.
I will try out your script on Monday. I am snowed under at the moment.
