          Put your first portal on the layout and set it up the way you want it. Then select it and all fields with in it and copy/paste it to make a copy.

          Open Portal set up for the copy by double clicking it.

          Change: Intial Row: 1, to Initial Row: 7 if your portal has 6 rows as shown in your image above.

          The rows will fill down in the first portal and then "flow" into the second portal.

          A variation of this method, using single row portals, is what we use to get a "horizontal portal" where the records are arranged horizontally instead of vertically.

            Hey Phil thanks for speedy response....much appreciated.

            Should a deposit ticket for checks be setup as a seperate table with its own _pk linked to payments?

              It sounds like a good idea if you want to list multiple checks in a portal on your deposit ticket to generate a single deposit transaction record in the parent table. This will be a lot like an invoice but with checks listed instead of items purchased.

                  Well I finally got it all setup seems to be doing just what I needed it to do. Now I got to make some money and get some checks so that I can deposit it.  That may be little be harder than setting all this up...  TO layout attached.

                  Thanks Phil!
