Limiting Portal Results to the found set.


     This is my first filemaker solution (speak slowly) and I am attempting to create a portal that lists only the results of the current found set.

     I would like to use a custom function to gather the unique IDs of each record in the found set and then filter the portal with that information.

     It would be awesome to get a "ConstrainToFoundSet" filter but as far as I can see there is none.

     I have seen some other methods that would accomplish this however creating an extra layout and script on each section of my interface would not really be my first option. I want to be able to reuse the custom function and only have to select the primary key to compare to the custom function list.

     I have attached a screenshot of the interface for clairity.
