How to Pull Records from One Table, and Field Inputs from Another

Hi all -


I'm pretty new to Filemaker, yet I've watched videos on working it and have what I initially want built out. I'm just a bit stuck at this one part though. A little background: I'm doing a database for a casting company and I have a layout for a Job Info and Talent. Job info Layout has fields such as Job Title, Production company, job info, and Roles.


I want to be able to input all the job information on this Job Info layout and from there, I want to be able to input all the Roles for the job. Anyways, where I'm stuck is I essentially want to click a button for Each Role that's inputted to cast from the Talent table. i.e. Role 1 - Hipsters, Role 2 - Business, Role 3 - Athletes, etc. I'll click a button and it'll take me to my Talent table where I can use the "Find" function to search talent that fit the qualifications.


When I tried, I have the associated table being "Talent". That way, I can click the button to get to this layout, and I can see all my search criteria listed so I can filter and find the talent I need for the specific Role. What I also need on this sheet, is for it to pull the data that I inputted into my Job Info layout such as Role, Job ID, Job Title, etc. It seems that I can either do one or the other but I can't seem to combine the two together on one layout.


I hope this is not too confusing. Here's a look at what My Relationships look like and also a screenshot of the Layout I have set up, but not working properly yet. Thanks for any help!!
