I need to duplicate records in a FileMaker 7 database which includes portals. The data in the portal fields in the record to be duplicated does not appear in the duplicate records. Similarly, I have not been able to use the "Replace Field Contents" function to replicate data in a portal field in a found set of records. Can "Duplicate Record" and "Replace Field Contents" be used with portal data? If so, how?

a Portal is nothing more than a means to show your related data. Therefore, if you want to duplicate the data shown through the portal, you must:

1. Figure out which relationship is being used for the portal.

2. Use Go to Related Record script step showing only those related records

3. Use a loop script to copy the data into wherever you want it to go.
