I'm having some freezing issues when trying to print a portal with 500+ records in it.
It prints perfectly fine when there is less number of records in the same portal.
is there anyone had the same problem?
If you have that many records, a list view is much better suited for it. Any reason why you are using a portal?
I'm using portal for my print layouts to show our students transcripts.
Why are you not able to do this via a list of student scores, showing related class info in a title header and trailing grand summary part?
OK, but a list view can show the transcripts even better than a portal for printing. You base the list view on the portal table, add fields from the parent table to the header, footer or grand summary layout parts and then you just need to pull up a found set of the Transcripts records for one student on that layout to get the results that you need.
PS. as to the freeze, might there be a portal filter on that portal? I'm wondering if you are getting not a freeze but a major delay while the portal filter evaluates--something that would be a function of the number of related records that have to be processed through the filter expression so that FileMaker can determine which to show in the portal.
