Title

Script for inserting document into container automatically replaces existing content

Post

Goal:  Paste multiple documents into a container associated with one record.

Portal solution:  I created a related file for the purpose of holding the documents and organizing them in a portal.  I set up the portal, and a script as follows:

     Go to Portal Row [Last]

     Insert file [Reference; RelationshipName::RelatedField]

Problem:  It works the first time.  But every subsequent insertion replaces the existing one.  I can only get one insertion per client record (one portal row).  I tried everything I could think of (go to portal row, last; made sure the field was not set to select all, etc.).

Repeating field solution:  I decided it didn’t necessarily need to be a portal, since I could accomplish the same thing with a repeating field (and the limitations of repeating fields don’t really apply here).  I created a repeating field in the main file, with multiple repetitions (12).  I then created a script as follows:

      Insert File [Reference; MainFileName::FieldName]

Same result – it keeps pasting in the first repetition cell.  I’ve tried “Go to Next Field,” to no avail.  I can’t figure out how to make it paste in the next available repeating field cell.

Any ideas would be appreciated.
