  1. Hello all I have one layout and I would like to display two portals, each from a different table, to display and enter data. Seems simple but my layout is tied to one of the tables and I would like to display data from the other one. I know they need to be related but not sure what field I need to relate them with. Each table consists of two fields, one is the id field or key.
  2. I have a database with a layout with 4 fields to display images. Next to each one is a button to delete or clear out the field. Instead of using 4 different scripts based on each field, I would like to use one script but the script need to know what field name its focused on.
  3. Hello all Is there a command to capture the field name, not its contents, into a local variable?
  4. Thanks EOS, that was very nice of you to display that sample file. It did make things clearer for me. I didnt expect such a clear answer and I appreciate it.
  5. I have a home asset table with a item field among other fields. I also have two other tables name category and location with a category and location text field, respectively. In one layout with a tab, I have two portals (see attachment). The left will list my categories and the right I hope to list my items that are located in the location area. I am not sure what relationships are needed to get this to work. Once I get the category to work, I will do the same for the location tab. The layout is based on the category table for now but that is probably wrong i Know.
  6. Thanks, supernatural. That was the problem. thanks alot.
  7. Hello all I am working on a new database using FM Pro 12 adv. The problem right now is that my fields seem to relocate when I switch between layout and browse mode and not sure why. See attachments. Any help would be appreciated.
  8. I have a portal window in my application. One of the fields among the records (rows) in the portal is a service cost field from my Service table. Outside of the portal on the same layout is a Total Service Cost field (Summary field based on Total of "Service Cost"). When I delete a row I have to go to another record and back again before my Total Service Cost field displays the updated totals. How can I see the updates as they happen without going to anther record? thanks again.
  9. Display top 4 Regional sales only via a bar chart Hello all I have managed to summarize my data like the following: Regional name: Total Sales: A $199,500.00 A $400,100.00 B $344,200.00 C $222,600.00 D $663,800.00 D $199,223.00 E $788,222.00 but I would like to display only the TOTALS of the top 4 regions (bars) via a bar chart. How would I limit the data the chart displays. I'm guessing that it will involved a calc field but not sure how. Thanks in advance.
  10. Hello I would like to display a layout with a bar chart within my runtime solution via a button if the user happens to have a full version of FMP11 or higher but prevents the user from going to the chart page if they do not have a full version of FMP11 or higher. Since you can't display charts within a runtime package. What command determines if the user is running a runtime version or not?

Hello all I would like to display a list of home inventory items such as the following: Item: Insurance type: replacement cost: Computer Home 800.00 iPhone Home 300.00 Truck Auto 12,000.00 ATV Motor Sport 4,000.00 Motorcycle Motor Sport 8,000.00 But only display in the format of the folowing in a portal display: Insurance type: replacement cost: Home 1,100.00 Auto 12,000.00 Motor Sport 12,000.00 I am using two separate tables for this. An asset and Insurance table with the relevant fields with both tied to by an Asset ID field. I am familiar with the relationship stuff but not sure how to group the records with a total. Thanks in advance for any help. ( Just in case the view of this post is bad as far as displaying my examples, I’m adding a pdf version. ) pdfversionofpost.pdf
