      I have a portal that is grabbing information from another table. Can I edit the in text inside the secondary portal without changing the text in the original table that text was brought in from?

          Nope. It's the same field, same record in the portal as "the text in the original table". If you need to edit a separate copy of the info, you need a record where the data is looked up (copied) from the original. Depending on what you need, this might be another record in the same table or a record in a related table.

            That's what I suspected. I'll use the lookup function instead.

            Thank you for your help.
