    Technical query


      Dear Experts,


      My name is Trisha and new to Filemaker. I have been assigned to the Filemaker project. Urgently I have to design a project. I am stuck with the following issues


      Here is the problem statement


      How to choose a specific portal and loop through it completely when there are more than one portals on the same layout.

      Results expected : Fetch first row of the portal and store the information in another portal which is the part of another layout.



      Thank you and looking forward to hear from you

          Hi Trisha,


          To target a portal and walk it's records:

          In Layout mode give the target portal an object name with the inspector.

          Your script should contain the following steps / logic.



          In your script use the go to object command giving the object name, then Go to Portal Row [First].

          use Set Variable to collect your data, go to a layout based on your destination portal table, create new record and set Field from your variables.

          go to layout( original )

          Go to Portal Row [Next].Exit after last

          End Loop


          This is pseudo code to give you the idea, however, in filemaker there are many ways to accomplish the task.
