Lists in Layouts
What is the best way to put a list in a layout? I know I can do a list view but I would like a layout where I have buttons, headers, footers and a list of all entries.
In my situation I have a table of users with first name, last name, phone number and other fields. I would like my database to have a layout where you view all the user fields in the way of a list but above have buttons to creat a new user, go to reports and go to other layouts. I thought I could use a portal but it will not let me select the current table I am in to gather data. I suppose that makes sences since portals are used for data from other tables.
Anyways, any help would be greatly appreciated.
