Show Related Records Various Layouts


Recommended Posts

  • Newbies

Dear users,

I have three tables for three relevant layouts. Each one has separate table and tables are related with only one field.

The scope is to show on the 2nd and 3rd layout the records that related with the 1st one. Here are some screen shots with what I need to do. Actually, I need to have on the seconf layout ("Orders from suppliers") the related records from the first one ("Suppliers list")

Thank you thank you

Giorgos

I don't understand what your screenshots show. 

In general, if you place fields from related table on the layout, they will show data from the first related record. Usually you want to disable entry to such fields to prevent accidental modification.

I have two different tables, one in 1st layout and a second one on the 2nd layout and I need to show related records (shown on the second layout, related with one filed from the 1st layout)

regards

I found the solution, it was simple. I made one simple layout with 3 portals from the 3 separate tables and further 2 copies with a different portal for each one. The 3 tables are related with the "maker" field and everything works. 

Thank you

      I am using Filemaker Server 18 on Windows Server 2012 R2
      Been using it for years with no issues
      Currently when I log in to the console it is very sluggish.
      When I get to the Dashboard it shows No databases, then it auto refreshes and the database list appears.
      Within 15 seconds of scrolling the database list to open files the screen refreshes. This situations is happening over and over in a loop.
      Any Thoughts on what is causing this issue?

      I get an error 3 when using a script to Export Records via WebDirect. Using FileMaker Server 18 and have tried both Safari and Chrome both with same results. I have tried using the temporary path, desktop path, and documents path. I have tried using with the automatically open and not. I have tried writing a tab delimited and comma delimited file. Does anyone have ideas I haven't yet tried?

      Hi All
       
      I am hoping some one can help!
      I have a table called TPM, in that table is a field "Next Due Date" Which is auto generated by creating a new record. You input the date you did the service and then it adds 3 months to that date and that appears in the Next Due Date Field.. All working...
       
      What I am trying to do is when the database loads it runs a script to see if there are any outstanding TPM Services to do...
      Here is the script
      Show Customer Dialog
      Message: If ( TPM::TPM Next Due Date < Get (CurrentDate ) ; "You have outstanding TPM services" ; "You have no outstanding services")
      I thought it would be that simple. So I created a TPM Due date Less that Current date and ran the script...."You have outstanding TPM Services"...GREAT! Then I deleted that record and ran the script again...""You have outstanding TPM Services" Oh!!! That isnt true!

      Hi,
      Can someone please explain why Leftwords function is not properly working when importing an excell sheet.
      For example the name John Doe LeftWords ( Client ; 1 ) should show "John" only.
      When typing John Doe it works fine but not when importing ????
      Looking forward to a reply.
      Kind regards

      Hi,
      My issue is that my customer layout has a script trigger on LayOutEnter that sorts my customers portal list by "Active" customers,
      but when I do a go to related record from another table say from quotes or any other the customer layout does not load that customer
      or show my related customer because the OnLayoutEnter script trigger changes it, I would like it to go to the related customer and also sort it by "Active"
      on the list.
      Hope someone can help me with this.
      Thanks,
      Pio
