Newbie: portal not displaying fields(screenshots included)

I am using filemaker pro 12 in a mac OS X El Capitan and it's my first attempt to make a database.

I created a portal in my table "Inventory Traffic" and I would like it to use the data from another table called "Inventory".

In my Inventory I have three fields with popup menus specifying the items. These fields are "Raw Material", "Color", "Other Raw Material selections" so one, for example, can choose the raw material and its color for every particular order. I, now, want these fields to be shown in "Inventory Traffic" table through this portal. So I created all the needed fields again in "Inventory Traffic" (i.e. I made the Raw Materials field again in "Inventory Traffic" and I specified the other field in it as so: Inventory::Raw Materials), made a connection through a relationship between the two tables(you can see how in the screenshots) and then I made a different value list to pop up which took values from the field(i.e. I created a new value list to pop up for the Raw Materials field in the Inventory Traffic which took values from the Raw Material field in the Inventory table).

As you can see in the screenshots I took good care of the field dimensions so that I can avoid having trouble with the portal bounders.Screenshot 2016-02-29 18.36.35.pngScreenshot 2016-02-29 18.35.28.pngScreenshot 2016-02-29 18.31.53.pngScreenshot 2016-02-29 18.32.11.pngScreenshot 2016-02-29 18.33.08.png


What am I missing? Or what am I doing wrong?
