I don't see why a portal wouldn't work. Can you describe what you want in more detail?
I see -- I can base the portal on another layout, and then add fields from the current layout. Sorry, still quite new at this.
Thanks, as always!
Portals are based on table occurrences, not layouts. These are the boxes found in Manage | Database | Relationships. They may have the same name as a table on the tables tab and a layout that refers to the same but these are three very different objects in FileMaker...
