Title

portal question - I think!

Post

I'm brand new to Filemaker - using Pro 10.

 

I have two tables: if_tables and if_rules. if_rules is related to the parent if_tables by a field called tag_name. I've created a layout using if_tables and added a portal that pulls in the if_rules where tag_name is same in both.

 

There are many fields in if_rules so I want to have only 1 if_rule record displayed at a time. I used Layout to position the fields in columns etc.

 

The portal has a vertical scroll bar.

 

Here's the problem: I can use the next/previous buttons in the main toolbar to select records from if_tables. When I get to a tag_name in if_tables that has >1 if_rules with a matching tag_name I can use the mouse wheel to scroll up and down the list.

 

However, if I click the up/down arrows on the vertical scroll bar on the portal, a duplicate record of the parent if_table is made for every click!

 

Help! ... please :)
