I'm brand new to FileMaker Pro so it could be that I'm missing something obvious. Hoping I can get some help with what seems like it should be a simple operation. I have a table called "Work Notes" whose records have only 2 fields. One called "Description" and one called "Category". I created a layout which allows me to type a text description in the Description field and to choose a Category from a drop-down list. I then created portals to only display notes from a particular category (category1, category2, category 3, etc.) through portal filtering according to category. This works well until I need to change the category of a given note. The individual category portals do not update unless I perform a "Refresh" command from the menu which is not only clunky, but I may not always remember to do it. I know I could work with a found set by manually performing a search, but I would prefer to have separate lists, broken down by category. My question is simply, is there an easier way of accomplishing what I need? Apologies if I'm not being clear and thank you in advance for any help any of you are able to provide.
