Hello, my name is Ben and I have just joined the forum so would like to greet you all. I have only just recently started working with filemaker so my knowledge may be lacking.


I seem to having an issue updating more than one related record correctly.

I have set up a layout which incorporates several tabs which in turn have a separate portal viewing separate related records. I have set up all the required relationships and TO's required and this works great. However the first related record which I setup a script to update all required fields based on the parent table and then switch to a layout within the related record via a button works without fail.

I then set the second related record up identically to the first, obviously changing all the set fields and switching of layout to the second related record, however, it only updates a few of the fields and not any of the others from the parent record and i really can't understand why it would not work.

Hopefully someone can shed some light on it as it is driving me slightly insane.


Thank you.
