Seeking alternative way for creating a related record through a very large value list portal field.
I have a table named "Hosts" and a related table named "Components". It is a many-to-many relationship so there is a join table named "HostComponents". The Components table has a lot of records. I have a value list field on the HostComponents portal for the ComponentID. When I try to create a new HostComponent record through the portal on the Hosts layout, the componentID value list length makes it impractical to find a component record.
How can I implement, in FileMaker pro 12, a Bento-Like "related data" lookup layout that allows me to select multiple records (lines) from the related Components table and create the new records in the HostComponent join table?
