"...at first it was not creating a child id on the child table. I have fixed that, but..."
How did you "fix' that?
Make sure this is what you have set up:
- The ID field in the child table should be a simple number field. It should not be set up to auto-enter a serial number.
- The ID field in your Parent record should be set up to auto-enter a serial number.
- In Manage | Database | Relaionships, double click the line linking your two table occurrence boxes and click the check box "Allow creation of records via this relationship" for the Child table.
Now entering data in the bottom blank row of your portal should create a new child record and automatically enter the ID number of your current Parent record.
