Neither v6 nor v8 prohibits more than 1 portal on a layout. Where the problem arises is that you will have problems going to the 2nd thru nth portal. To get around this problem, put a non-enterable field that is unique to each portal on the 1st row. Then do a GoTo Field. The field need only be 1 pixel by 1 pixel.

Steve,

Thanks for the quick reply, and now I can't wait to dig in and figure out why this has not worked in the past; in truth the solution has been working for about 18 months since I last tinkered with anything other than layouts.

Here is my invoice [in Browse Mode];) http://69.137.5.95/msa_invoice.pdf

'Current Reimbursables' is a portal. This works great.

'Professional Services detail' is a repeating field [i know, I know]. And this is where I want the portal, so I can bring in data from a file called 'Tasks Accomplished.

Can you give me a little more of a hint to get me going on making this work? it needs to show running balance [i have a plugin for that].

Thanks for the kind help.

Michael
