Make Layout with Multiple Records

I'm trying to build a LIMS-like database for some sample tubes that we have stored in 10x10 boxes.I understand the concept of relationships, but I think I must be missing something with portals, because I assume this is how I would accomplish what I want to do. Ideally, I would like to have a layout that shows a 10x10 representation of a box, and each record is one of the 100 spots in the box. The users would be able to click on one of the spots in the layout, input their record information, and move on to the next spot. This layout would then link back to a table where you can see all 100 records in the traditional table view.


Is there an easy way to do this? I can't figure out how to make more than one record show up on a layout, so it seems like a bit of an impossible task to me (I'm very new to Filemaker).
