Did you turn on the option to show the verticle scroll bar under the portal options? If so, did you turn on the Pen Pattern to something?
Sorry for delay. Have been busy. No, the backgrounds are OK. I did get
the child table to show the values that are inserted into the (parent) portal window.
However I still can't get the scroll bar to appear and therefore cannot add new rows
in the portal because it won't scroll down.
I think you should try and post the file and / or screenshot at least.
I must apologize. It WAS the Fill Pattern and Pen Color
that needed resetting. I have marked your reply as the answer.
Thanks for your help. CountryBoy1
