Data doesn't appear in table

Data doesn't appear in table


FileMaker Pro



Operating system version

Mac OS 10.5.8

Description of the issue

I've used Filemaker for many years to track student grades. This semester I separated the records into several tables. I have three tables: for student info, assignments, and midterm (among others).

In each case, I have created a field "student." I have created a relationship between student info and each other table. For each, I selected "Allow creation of records" on each side of the relationship. In Layout Setup I show records for student info. On the layout, the student field is from student info, and all the others are from the other table, whether assignments or midterm.

When I type data into the various fields of the midterm (e.g., length, interpretation, citation) it all appears until I deselect by moving to another record. Instead, the data appears only when I select "Show data from [Midterm] in Layout Setup.

I've triple-checked, even now as I wrote this. I'm stumped. Any help appreciated. Thanks.
