"2. Or is there a way to make a portal slide for printing?(I wasn't able to)"
Yes, portals can slide up. All sliding objects have several limitations.
- The only shrink they don't "grow".
- The sliding is only visible when you print/preview/PDF the layout. (can't see it in browse mode).
These points may explain why it didn't work for you.
"1. Is there a way to show all of the "goal" records that are related to the "goal set" without using a portal and still having the fields editable? The reason for this is the goal doesn't have to be edited but the progress does."
Do you know how to create a summary report with sub-summary parts? If you are using FMP 10, the resulting report is fully visible and editable in browse mode.
Base your report on the "Goal Set" table.
Place the fields from your Goal table in a sub-summary part (when sorted by Goal, print above).
Place your "Goal Set" fields in the body.
Use a find to pull up just the records you want (all the goal set records for a specific patient case, I would presume). Sort them by the same field you specified as the "when sorted by" field in your sub-summary part and you've got what you need.
I will give that a try and let you know what I come up with.
It might take a little while, I'm still learning.
Thanks for taking the time to answer.
Works great for that part of my solution!
Thank you so much for your help.
