  1. Mama Mia . . . Here is a bright and very logic idea from Brighton UK. And it just works BANG just like that, right out of the box, Thank You . But why, did I not even think about that ?? Example_Kenterprise.fp7.zip
  2. That is correct, I agree with you. And that is why I would like to do is to create a calculation that WILL tell FM to take the name from the current active row, the one I click in, the problem is that I don’t know how to create that calculation, do you ? :(
  3. That is correct, so that is why I am talking about the active row information. If the calculation in GTRR step two (Show record using Layout:) - Layout name by calculation - Parents Com Form Letter::Name, can include a calculation, which tell FM to take the name from the current active row, then everything would be all right ! What do you think ?
  4. The GTRR step one (Go to relater Record from:) points to a table name “parents”. The layouts name “Form Letter 1” and “Form Letter 2” belongs to the table named “Parents” as well. The GTRR step two (Show record using Layout:) - Layout name by calculation - Parents Com Form Letter::Name. The table “Parents Com Form Letter” is related to the table “Parents”. The field named “Name” contains the name of the Layout. You are write in your post that: your GTRR step goes to one table, while your form letter layouts belong to another. As far as I can se they belong to the same table - Parents - And as you can se from the attach file it is working, the Form Letter 1 layout will open all right, the problem is that Form Letter 2 will not (if you change the name in the name field in the portal to Form Letter 2, then of course that will open) Thanks so much for your effort with the little example, and all your great help and support, I am just now sitting and looking at it. Caio
  5. Yes, as a last resort I followed your advice - Just play some rock n’ roll - !! Oh - yes the music was good, but it did not charm FM !! Even with the New Window step removed from the script, FM always go to the first row in the Portal (first record in table) and take the name of the layout, with the result is that it will always go to the same layout no matter which row I will be clicking on. As you suggested yesterday ( and now I know how ) I have attach the file, I had to strip some layouts in order to get under the 1 M allowed file size . The “Go to Parents - P. Form Letter Layout” script is right at the top of the scripts list, and the file will open up displaying the layout containing the Portal . Thanks again to your open mind attitude. How about trying playing some Italian Opera, that might charm FM to behave ? Student_information_System_copy.zip
  6. I don’t have any Commit Records steps in the script, before the GTRR step is only, New Window Script step. And yes, I will be happy to attach a copy, here it is, and thanks and cheers to you and your good energy, Bravo ! The name of the script is: Go to Parents - P. Form Letter Layout To navigate to the Portal: Select - Parents/Communations/Form Letter Allright, I dont know how to attach a file here in this forum, can I send you a E-mail ?
  7. Thanks,( now, what is the expression again, RTFM ?) Thanks for your informations on X Operator. I have been going the long way around by Auto-Enter the same data at each end - But still, now in a relationship, without any Golbal storage fields at ether end, and based on the X operator, and using: Go to Related Record [show only related records; From table: "Related Table"; Using layout: Relationship::FieldContainingLayoutName] the problem is still the same, that it will always go to the same layout no matter which row I will be clicking on.
  8. Here is what I mean with a "global relationship". That each end of the relation is a global Storage field with one value for all records, set to Auto-Enter the same data value at each end. So that the Protal will show the same list of FormLetters in all the records. :(
  9. The Middleman! (Active row information) By using your advice: Go to Related Record [show only related records; From table: "Related Table"; Using layout: Relationship::FieldContainingLayoutName] FM always go to the first row in the Portal (first record in table) and take the name of the layout, with the result is that it will always go to the same layout no matter which row I will be clicking on. The two tables are related with a global relationship, so that the Protal will show the same list of FormLetters in all the records. That would be very appreciated if you can point me in the right direction, abuot how to tell FM to go to the active row in the portal, and pick the name of the layout from the field.
  10. Thanks for the Welcome, and thanks for your advice !! Sorry, I don't think my question was very well formulated, so I have rephrased the original question. I hope that will give you a better understanding of what the problem is and what I am trying to accomplish. "How come the demand for my opinions is never as great as the supply?" - Ashleigh Brilliant Right here the demand is greater than the supply. I am sitting in Italy on the Mediterranean cost, working on this thing for a school in Switzerland, and I am not good in scripting and calculations, with few FM people around here I have no one to help me out when getting stuck. -
  11. Hi, By clicking a button on a portal row, I would like to goto a layout in a related table, the name of the layout is in a field on the same row as the button. ( in fact, the portal contains a list of form letters, so each row in the portal is suppose to open a different layout). How can I get FM to go to to the active row in that portal and take the name of the layout from the field. Without that active row information, of-course FM will goto the first record in the tablet, and take the name of the layout from the field. And the result is that it will always goto the same layout. Have anybody got any good ideas, Thanks.
