      Problem with editing fields on a New Window

      Post

      Situation  

      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.

       (Sorry if it sounds confused but it hard to explain
