Table ID issues


FileMaker Pro



Operating system version


Description of the issue

Filemaker connects tables on different records using the unique table ids. Information from one table cannot be changed without affecting another record because it automatically formats the table with the same table ID.

Steps to reproduce the problem

ex) Table with past medical history

1)insert info for one patient
2) go to same portal a few records later, already info inserted
3) if insert new past medical history info on 2nd portal, it changes first and loses data from the first portal

when i checked the other layout for the portal, it had the same ID number

Expected result

want to be able to insert past medical history into portal without random records becoming connected

Actual result

portals are connected with ID numbers

Exact text of any error message(s) that appear



duplicating record doesnt help because it deletes info previous inserted into portal

changing ID manually doesn't work either
