Hi:

Do you mean one column, or one row?

To make more fields in the portal (columns), stretch the portal with the handles and add fields to the first row in layout mode.

If you want to add more rows, do this:

Right click on the portal and select Portal format. There is a box where you can specify how many rows you want.

Hi Alain, when you said you did it - do you mean you figured out your problem? Or that you've created your relationship as Kenneth suggested?

FM doesn't automatically insert the related fields for you. Which is silly in my opinion. FM should offer you a Specify Field insertion box to be polite, but it doesn't. After you place your portal, you must select Insert > Field and (at the top) select your relationship name, then (one at a time) select your related fields to place within the portal. If you've done that and no records are showing when you switch back to Browse (and there should be) then you have something wrong in your relationship. smile.gif
