tabs, portals and nested portals


     Hi All - thanks very much for your help.

     I'm continuing my Lakes-Nets/Traps-Catches database. The old version seemed to work and now emboldened, I'm trying to improve things. 

     I am trying to put the lake info on one page, then have a series of tabs that will hold the related information. Within each tab will be a portal for the related table. But within that portal will be a nested portal. So as an example one lake will have one or more than one net being set. that net will catch between zero and many fish which the biologists want to store info about. 

     I'm just on the first tab and running into a problem. After entering lake data nothing shows up in the net sites tab. Do I need to create a button to start that? Should the button be outside of the tab (where I have currently placed it)? Do I need to copy the primary/foreign keys over to the table as part of that button? 

     I've posted my fmp file to if you're able to take a look for me that would be great.

     any help would be very much appreciated

     - helpless newbie.
