Simultaneous Synchronized List View and Detail View


     I'm in a trial period of Filemaker and considering purchasing and one thing I am trying to do is to have a simultaneous list of a records in one window and then an expanded details in another window. And I would like to be able to ctrl-down ctrl-up through the list and see the detailed form view in the second window.

     I tried the footer method of placing detailed fields in the footer, but I want to find out how to do the two-portal, or multi-window method with self-join.

     I looked over instructions in the forum, and tried to implement a variety of recommended methods without success. Does anyone have a more detailed explanation for FM 12 and perhaps a sample database that already has this idea implemented?
