Title

A simple scenario with a nested portal not working out (example file)

Post

     So here’s what I have, simple: 

      

Three tables the second on being the child of the first, and the third that of the second. A couple of ids (pk), fks, and a couple of dummy fields. (The real life scenario I try to emulate is clients having a child of departments and that a child for employees) 

      

One layout from the first table with a portal to the second, and a nested portal there of the third. 

      

The portal doesn’t stay put but floats above. 

      

What am I missing out?

b. I ve taken a turn to an approach of using value lists created on the spot, I ‘ve not taken it more than 50% in development, and it seems rather convoluted from what I am trying to do. That is have a nested portal of the employees per dept in the client layout.
