Question: Keep a table and portal in sync (part 2)
This is a continuation of a previous post, but I had to make a new message as I could not insert a picture in the reply section of the original forum message. (I tried for three days on three computers with four different browsers.)
I am still trying to get a Main table and a Portal to scroll in synch with each other.
I have 1 table.
I have 1 key field.
I have self joined.
The relationship uses the X operator.
I have put the original table on a layout, I have put the selfjoin table in a portal on the layout.
All I want is that they scroll in sync, and if I select a record in either, the related record shows in the other.
I presume I must need a script, but I have actually tried every possible combination of scripts and events I can think of, but it just does not happen for me.
Is life really this difficult, or is it me just not getting the point?
I don't think I am totally stupid, I've raised 3 kids and held down a decent job for 30 years.
So please could someone put me out of my misery and help me just get started with this.
