Navigate from portal selection.


I’m relatively new to Filemaker, coming from a deep Access background. My experience with Filemaker is at a novice level. I’m trying to re-implement an existing Access “Job Costing” project in Filemaker.

I’m trying to set up some navigation from a salesman’s record to a related customer record in a new layout. In the Salesman’s layout I have a portal showing all his customers. I would like to turn the customer’s name into button, so clicking on the name would navigate me to the Customer Layout and the single record (found set) for the customer whose name was clicked on in the Salesman Layout.

The files are related through with a SalesmanID key in the salesman record and SalesmanIDsk sub-key in the customer record.
