Duplicating records with portal information intact

Duplicating records with portal information intact




I'm a newb, creating a database based on the "Events Management" template. I'm using Filemaker Pro 10 on OSX 10.6.3. I really haven't changed the structural hierarchy of the database template at all -- tables and layouts have retained their names for the most part.


What I'm looking to do is find a way to duplicate Event records and retain portal information from the record being copied. The events that I'm managing in many cases happen over the course of several days with slightly varying contacts associated -- but in some cases its 40 contacts that I'm dealing with, and there must be a better way than re-entering the data for each event instance (I need to keep each day as a separate record for budgeting purposes).


Any advice? Thanks in advance!
