newbie looking for a way around nested portals

### Post

I'm aware that I can't nest portals, but I have a set of related databases in which the first database contains information about a job and is related to a second database that consists of tasks performed on that job. So I'm viewing the Task database in a portal in the Job database. Now I would like to be able to relate a sub-task database to my task database, so that each task can consist of a varying number of subtasks depending on the day, and I would like to be able to view these subtasks in the same portal as I'm viewing the current Task. The classic description of a nested portal which doesn't work. I'm know this question has been answered before, but on reading the answers, I couldn't understand how to implement them in a way that would work for me. Any suggestions?

Just to make myself more clear

Job #1

Task#1

sub Task 1

sub Task 2

Task # 2

subTask 1

Task # 3

sub Task 1

Job # 2 etc.

Job and task are related by Job #. I want to have an unlimited number of subtasks for each task, which is why I don't want to use repeating fields. Again, I'm sure this is relatively easy but can someone point me in the right direction please?

If you make the portal look into the SubTasks table, you could have it show:

Task 1 SubTask 1

Task 1 SubTask 2

Task 1 SubTask 3

Task 2 SubTask 1

Task 2 SubTask 2

With some conditional formatting, this could become:

Task 1 SubTask 1

Task 1 SubTask 2

Task 1 SubTask 3

Task 2 SubTask 1

Task 2 SubTask 2
