Title

Show full record details for a portal row in another tab...

Post

I have created a database that manages purchase orders.

In the layout that shows an orders details it has a Tab Control with two tabs.

The first tab contains a portal that lists all the items on the order, The information on this is the basic stock code, quantity, description, costs. This is a few of the fields from the ordered_items table.

I want to be able to show in tab two the full record details for the item selected in tab one so that extended information can be put in such as serial number, asset location.

From my beginners efforts the second tab only displays the information from the first item in the portal, how do I make it possible to select the other items to update them too?
