    View Product from Different Layouts


      I have a Contacts file and a Prisoners file, I can view a product from the portal in the Prisoners file but I use similar scripts for the Contacts file but the product does not show when I click on View Product button in the Contacts file. I have attached files showing the script I have used. I used similar relationships with each file. Sorry I tried to Insert image but nothing happened.

          What version of FileMaker are you using? The script and file techniques you're using indicate pre-7. But the script steps say something much more recent.


          You should stay away from Copy[] and Paste[] and use modern techniques, like Set Field[] and Set Variable[]. And I'd recommend having one file with several tables. If that's not possible, you can still access related files.


          In fact, you could replace each of your scripts here with a simple Go To Related Record[] script step.
