A few days ago I received great help from philmodjunk about portals. He helped me make a portal on one layout that enters records on a related table (Edit fields of related table using portal ). This is what I came up with:
Now I am trying to do a similar thing, but with students' names. I have the related table that has these fields:
Main Table Code (ID from main layout--the teacher the student is under)
I created the portal in the exact same fashion, accommodating for edit box rather than dropdown and calendar but when trying to edit the record, the edit boxes simply disappear. I cannot click on them or even see them in layout mode.
The portal on top should include edit boxes to insert the name of a new student and therefore a new record in the students table.
Any idea what's going on?
