Can you have a Portal on a form that contains data from the same (only) database you have open?

Post

FMP10 Advanced.

 

Here's what I wanted to do...

 

At the top of the form, I have set up a series of fields to use for searching.  Most have self-generating lists based on the current table data.  This section is to limit, or filter, the data presented.

 

I wanted to present the data in a portal at the bottom of the same form.

 

However, when I try to create a portal, it appears you can only do this when you have a relational system set up as it wants the name of a different database than the one you are working on.

 

Is there no way around this?  I really wanted to create a simple, single-page search/filter and display form.

 

Thanks :)
