Problem with editing fields on a New Window
The file has 2 Tables
The Planner Table (with an Events table portal linked by date and time) to the Events table.
I have no trouble switching back and forth between the tables.
But to make the planner work easily I want to open a Event Table window on the Planner window.
If I make no changes to the records in the portal while in a Planner Layout I can open a new window edit the contents of the Events table itself. This is good.
But if I make any change to the contents of related field in the Planner events portal I am locked out unless I select another events portal field in another Planner record then go back to the one I want to edit
It seems if I make a change there is a link formed that I cannot break. I cannot find any bit of script that clears the connection. And allows me to edit the Events table in a New Window
I get this window popping up:
"This record cannot be modified in this window because it is already being modified in a different window"
I would appreciate some advice.

To safe a lot of energy
I found the answer
I needed to 'Commit Records'
Then go to the New Window
This is effect save the change and allows the records to be open to be editted
