data entry using portal question


moving existing database from access'97 to filemaker... having issues making a fast data entry layout for entering new orders... the primary key feild is unknown to person doing data entry... they want to use auto-lookup from customer name table... can do this using a portal to enter order info, but when the customer has lots of orders, it is a nightmare to scroll down to the last line... and if I do data entry from the order table I am unable to get lookup from the customer table...


what am I doing wrong?   on pg 335 of the 'missing manual' they indicate this is an issue in a side bar note, and say they will address it later int he chapter... have read the chapter over and over and can't see where....


somebody help... please.
