Portal within portal difficulty


Hi all once again (using FMP11 on Mac, served FM8)

We have a fairly large db of contacts, a subset of whom we occasionally send specific letters to, so we have a structure:

Picacontax::ContactID = Contact_Letter::ContactID and

Contact_Letter::LetterID = Letter::LetterID, so I have a portal on the Contact's record to Contact_Letter

additionally we'd like to track followup calls (potentially several) to that particular contact about that particular letter, and response (likely only one), so I have a sub-portal to a table called 

Follow_Contact_Letter with FCL::FollowID = Contact_Letter::FollowID and

FCL::ContactID = Contact_Letter::ContactID

my difficulty is that deleting related record from first portal doesn't delete RR's from mini-portal

any help appreciated
