Must click outside portal to get some fields 'accepted' ???
There must be something I am overlooking so I will keep this brief:
I have 2 tables:
I have 2 layouts:
#A) Based on Members. Has these fields: Members::LASTNAME, Account::NUM, Account::Description
#B) Based on Account. Has these fields in a portal based on Account: ::Num ::Description.
The weird thing is that if I put the Members layout in a window and then add records to the Account layout, everything added to Account shows in Members EXCEPT Members::LastName. The only way to get the Lastname to show is to click in that field on the Members Layout. I don't think I should have to do that. I must be overlooking something fundamental. Help is appreciated.
