Problem with FM Training Series Lesson 2

I am working through the FileMaker Training Series. I'm in lesson 2 and trying to add a "Container" field to the "Person" table. It adds correctly.


I then went into the layout manager and added the new field, "PersonPic", to the "Person Detail" layout. It's now there but it has the following text written across it: "<Unrelated Table>"


I've tried it twice and I believe I followed the instructions but I can't get it to work. If I click on the field, I get a popup with the error: "This operation could not be completed because the target is not part of a related table."


The options I put on the field are:

  • Store container data externally
    • Open storage: "PERSON/PersonPic/"
