      switchboard screen with information relationship question.

      Post

       

      hey group

      I have a switchboard screen at the start-up of a database, this is just a form with buttons on to open up various forms and options from, it is central point like a home page.
      to create this screen I made a database called switchboard with nothing in it, I was then able to create a layout for the switchboard and put all my control buttons on. all is working fine. (is this a good work method?)

      Now I would like to have portals displaying data from other sources / tables as a quick view as to what is going on, i.e a to do list, unfinished jobs list, Urgent to be done list, how many items made list etc....

      But I am confused on how to make the relations with the switchboard form as there is no data in it to relate to, also at my early attempts with a portal, I get an issue where I need to create a record in the "switchboard" table to get any data?

      can anyone point me in the right direction please. 

      regards
