    Bless you, Dana. Three days of horrified hair pulling were solved by changing those permissions.

    Search of populated portal returns no records

    Thanks, Vaughan. I actually figured it out--my native key is a calculation based on a bunch of related fields (Contacts_ID::CompanyName or Contacts_FirstName::CompanyName, etc.). In Find mode, that calculation is empty or invalid, therefore the relationship is invalid, therefore no results are found. I've been doing this a long time, and this the first time I've boxed myself into an invalid relationship with the NATIVE key. [i say quietly to myself, "Duh."]
  3. Hi all--I am getting unexpected behavior in a portal. I have an inconvenient work-around, but I'd rather understand what is happening. The native key is a single line text calculation, and the foreign key is a multi-line text calculation. I see data in the portal, but performing a find returns no records found, whether I search for specific data or "> 0" or empty. I built test files duplicating the fields and relationships, and the problem persists. When I change the NATIVE key to a text field, the problem goes away. Any ideas what I'm missing? The work-around is to regularly update the native text field with the calculated results of the native key, but that's counter-intuitive . Thanks in advance!
