      Portal fields

      Post

      I have a layout associated with Invoices table, inside the layout I have a portal showing records from the Invoice Data table.  Invoices and Invoice Data are related.  However the fields will not show in the portal unless I have "Allow creation" selected from Invoice to Invoice Data, is this normal and why?

          This is normal if your portal has no related records to show. Why would you expect to see fields from records that are not related to your layout's current record? (Or which do not pass any portal filter you may have specified)

          When "allow creation..." is enabled, FileMaker puts an "add row" into the portal where you can input data and create a related record in the portal by doing so. This row does not represent an actual record.
