Portal Entry Field Not Allowing Entry

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:

Works perfectly!


Now I am trying to do a similar thing, but with students' names.  I have the related table that has these fields:


     StudentID (UUID)

     Main Table Code (ID from main layout--the teacher the student is under)

     First Name

     Last Name


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?
