New to Filemaker and having a Relationship issue


First, my background. I am using Filemaker Pro 10 Advanced on Windows Vista and Snow Leopard. I am fairly new to Filemaker in that I have created some simple databases and I have worked with Access in the past.


Now for my issue. I am trying to create a database to include the following: clients, orders and expenses along with a few other things but I have that part figured out. The clients table is linked with the orders table, since every order will have a client. The expenses table is not linked to a client because the expense may occur with or without a client. Therefore, I would like to create a financial summary of both orders (which would be income), along with the expenses. I have figured out the summary fields and have gotten those to work. The problem is in displaying the data on a layout, I cannot get the data from both the orders and expenses tables to show and I believe it is a relationship problem.


Any help would be appreciated.
