I currently have a form that contains a portal. In the portal there is a value that will either be "Accepted" or "Rejected". I'm wondering if there's a way to parse through this table to check if any related values have a "Rejected" or if they are all "Accepted". Then using that outcome, decide if the form should display Rejected or Accepted.
Please let me know if I need to provide any more information and/or images.
Thanks in advance for any assistance you can offer!

I have a configuration table (named 'Usager actif') with 'Projet ID actif' and start/end date values (field name 'Bilan date début' and 'Bilan date fin') linked to a timesheet table (named 'FTemps lié Projet bilan') to show only the records that match, according to the following relation:
This table is also linked to a step table (named 'Étapes lié FTemps lié Projet bilan') to show a list of steps used by the timesheet table (named 'FTemps lié Projet bilan'), base on the following relation:
So the last table (named 'Étapes lié FTemps lié Projet bilan') is shown in a portal and it's working correctly (show only two steps used, for all the timesheet records). But I wanna show the total time used for each step (first step is 5 hours, and last one 95 hours). It's working correctly if the start/end date included all timesheet records. But if I shrink the ending date (removing 2 hours from the timesheet in step 2), the total time by step still show all time since the context does not follow from timesheet table to the step table in relation.
I still see 5 hours for step 1 and 95 hours for step 2 (should be 93). The total time for all step is now 98 hours, since the ending date has been shrink (removing 2 hours on step 2).
How can I do this (hope fully I'm clear enough)?
I am currently building a database to handle the inspection sheets used by our Quality lab. Here is the relationship layout:
For each revision on the Revisions table, I have a differing number of Dimensions that need to be measured (some parts/revs will have 5 dimensions, while others will have 15). Each dimension has a specified type of instrument used in measurement, and a max/min value. The instrument used is a drop down menu that references a list of instruments/gages that we use.
Here is how I have my inspection sheet currently laid out:
The portal on the left points towards my dimensions table. It shows the data corresponded to the specified Part Number and Revision level. The data contained in this portal is uneditable from this form. The portal on the right points towards my RecordedDimensions table. It will store data that will correspond back to the Lot# associated with that inspection sheet.
I also have a table that pairs all the different types of instruments we use, with their corresponding gage ID's:
Now I would like my user to be able to click on the dropdown box under Instrument#, and that drop down box will only show the Gage ID's for the specified gage. So, if on the dimensions table, a dimension calls out for Digital Micrometers to be used, then when my user goes to select the instrument ID (which is saved in the RecordedDimensions table) it will would allow them to choose 151, 152, 153, 306, 324, 330, and 331.
Please let me know if I have not provided enough information/pictures, I will gladly provide more.
Thank you in advance for any assistance you can offer me!
I have a database that keeps track of computer system information. I have a record for each system (one per room). Within this system there are a number of different computer devices and I want to track settings such as IP addresses subnet masks and other network type information.
I have a table called “Systems” and I’m using tabs to separate the different devices within a system. Within each separate tab do I need to create a unique field for each piece of information or is there a more efficient way to do this? For example:
the first field would be device one IP address
the second field would be device one subnet mask
The third field would be device one preferred DNS
The fourth field would be device one IP address
The fifth field would be device one subnet mask
The sixth field would be device one preferred DNS
Seems like I’m missing something and there might be a more efficient way. Thank you for any help.
I hope that someone on this community is able to assist me in a rather complex dynamical filtering of portals... I am working on a pretty complex CRM based on this demo for dynamical filtering of portals by Sara Severson: http://www.soliantconsulting.com/blog/2013/03/dynamically-filtering-filtered-portals
But I have an issue when trying to dynamically filter the portal based on several relationships, that someone here maybe can answer... This is my situation:
Filemaker file A (the CRM) contains a portal which I filter. The portal show posts from file B (Contact database) with the use of a relationship X. The relationship match fields in the two files are global fields containing just "1" - which matches all posts.
The filtering of the portal here is working great. I can filter posts from the Contact database without any issues. But I would like a second dynamical filter field in relationship with a file C (an Order database) so I can narrow down the contacts in regards to what they ordered.
So I made, in file A, another relationship between file B (relationship X) and file C (Order database). Here I match a client ID in file B with a client ID in file C. And adjusted the portal filter criterias accordingly, so it took notice of this second filter field.
And yes, now it seemed that I could filter out specific orders, to find, for example, only clients in city X (from the file B, the contact database) which has bought item A (from the file C, the order database). But I noticed it didn't find every client with a particular order - after some debugging I found out that this procedure did only find the latest order a client made, in file C.
In other words:
If client A (from contact database) ordered item A and then later item B (posts in the order database), the filter did only find the client's order of item B. If I try to filter for item A, it found other clients that ordered this item, but not the client which ordered both A and B.
It seems that the relationship between file B and C only matches the latest match, which seems a little odd.
If I put a portal in file B (the contact database), with relationship of Client ID with file C (the order database), Filemaker found all orders, but only the first row in this unsorted portal here is found by the filter in file A.
Any ideas? How can I make the relationship between file B and C in file A to find all orders?
Here an image of the tables in file A, with some complementary information: https://postorder-hstrom.tinytake.com/sf/MTUxODk5N181Mjg2NDAz
