Thanks for posting,
Doubleclick on the relationship box and verify that new records can be created in the other tables through the relationship.
Is that the problem?
I did do that so that it can be created in either of the tables. any other thoughts?
Thank you for your post.
If you have set up the relationship to add data to the table, then any entry you enter into the portal will add to that table. If you just create a record in the current table, it will NOT automatically create a record in a portal. You have to enter the information in the portal to add.
