Title

Copy contents of 1 field in portal to main table field

Post

     Hi, I think this can be done after reading this

     How to copy data to one field from multiple portal records
     http://help.filemaker.com/app/answers/detail/a_id/2403/kw/copy%20field%20script

     However, I just want to dumb it down and copy the contents of 1 field of 1 record in my portal to 1 field of one record in the main table.

     How do I do this?

     NB:

     I have related 2 tables.

     1 table (main table) shows the portal of records from the other table (related table)

     I have a field in both tables with about 20 checkboxes to check.

     Quite often, I want them to show the same data, however, the data is only in the related table, and it takes a lot of time to check each of the boxes each time for each record, so I thought can I use a script, or something, to just copy the contents of the field in the record of related table, to main tables field.

     This would save a lot of time, if someone knows of a solution.

     Thanks :)
