    Another confusing question re portals and List views


      Another confusing question re portals and List views


      Whilst waiting for a printing portal solution I thought I'd try and have a crack at another problem.


      Tables:See diagram.

      Layouts: Enquiry, Enquiry history. Orders, 


      Relationship diagram attached.


      I have an enquiry layout that shows the client's details. I then have a tabbed layout (looks like a tab but designed by me instead of using tab feature) that should show previous orders placed by the client for my reference. It shoudl show a job number (from Orders table) description (from lines table) and price extended (lines table). I have tried portals, single field body and list layout, but I dont get the list of orders specific to the record I was looking at (on a different layout, enquiries as using my own tabs). I just see all of the orders. How do I get filemaker to show only the related records to the record I was viewing? Shoudl I script trigger on entering the layout to related record? Portal? 

      I understand if I amnot that clear so ask away. I do have more tables and layouts but thought these are the most relecvent to this question...
