Help ! How to copy data in Portal row into another

Recommended Posts

Hi,

I just know the filemaker for few weeks and I need to make a quick database program for my company.

Now I hit a problem. I want to do the function like shopping cart. User search the data in Portal 1 and select the record and record will copy to Portal 2 .

I try to use setfield[] , but it only copies the data into first row. I want the data ADD into Portal 2 from Portal 1 instead of just replacing first row.

Have anyone has any idea ?

Thanks !!

Henry

Hi,

You're missing a step in the related file involving a global field.

Check the sample "Multikey in Action" in the Sample Forum. Apart from Multi-key demo is a "Add to Cart" example.
