"...if I try to nest the results table within the action field "
Do you mean Portal instead of Field?
I can't tell what you are describing here. It would also help if you would describe the relationships linking your three tables. (What fields? What relationship options? etc.)
Yes, I mean portal, sorry I am working with the French version of FM and sometimes my translations are approximative.
All my tables have a unique serial ID which is used to link the tables.
The "Results" table is linked to the "Action" table ID field in a many to one and the "Action" table is linked to "Problems" table ID also in a many to one relationship.
The "Problems" layout has a portal which display the "Action" table and what I would like is to embed a "Results" portal in the "Action" portal.
I can do it, but the result is that all the "Results" records are displayed in the first displayed action, which is not exactly what I need.
