Search for Product
I have W7/FM12pro adv.
Database: Companies and Products, related both side on Company field.
I can now do a Find/Perform Find based on Product-field is Tomatoes, then I see all companies growing Tomatoes.
but I have to type it all the way to get a portal listing or View Mode Browsing, THAT WORKS FINE !
I like to have: (as example):
Fill in a "search" field,under the top/header of a Tab/Portal and use that value on that field to make a filtered Portal.
So Tomatoes , I see the Tomato companies in the Portal
if search field "Apples", I see all companies growing Apples in the Portal
How to make such search field??

If you are using FileMaker 12, you can open the file from the File menu to convert it to FMP12 format.
Feel free to ask questions about the design an implementation of one of the methods employed in this demo file.
