    Viewing all records in a portal



      Viewing all records in a portal


           Hello All,

           I'm very new to FM. I have used Access and I wanted to step up to File maker. I am building a solution with the proper relationships made between tables. The trouble I'm having is getting all of the records in in one layout to show up in a portal in another. I can get one record at a time to show up but not all. I am building a dispatch program for first responders. There are three tables, Personnel, Dispatch and radio log. Dispatch is a join table between the radio log and personnel. I would like all of the records that are in the dispatch table to show in a portal in the Radio Log table. Maybe you could tell me what I'm doing wrong.

           I know I could use a global field to pull up all the records, but I think that would require the user input a filter each session.

           Thanks for your help!
