Can one select records from a portal to update the displayed layout?

Post

     I'm trying to display fields from the table a portal contains on a layout that is for a different table.   I want to be able to click on the field in the portal and have it update the fields displayed in the layout.  Here's my scenario:  

     I have a "Tourer" table which contains information on someone taking a tour.  That's the layout I'm using for this also - mainly the Tourer table fields.  On the layout I have a portal, which shows the tours the person has taken (Member Tours).  They get sorted.  I can add tours using the portal and delete them.  I also show fields on this layout that correspond to the Member Tour .

     What I want to do is to be able to click on one of the portal entries (Member Tour Code) and have the fields corresponding to that tour display on this layout.  

     I have a pared down version of the DB if that would help, I just don't know if it's right to post it here or not.

     Thanks for any help,

     Jim
