Hello,

I have a database with all contacts of out different custumers. in Filemaker, I made a page with the adress of the firm, and beneath a portal, with all contacts of that firm. from another file.

there I can add new contacts.

now I am making the DB online, and I would like to make new contacts via the sites. but he doesn't assign that new contact to the firm. and I can't get portals on the site with the new line below. I can only use cdml-portals to show the existing contacts,

How can I make a new contact???

Thx for help!

Without running scripts on the web(and trust me, you dont' want to open up that can), you could use an Inline action tag to create that new record in the related database when the page loads (and the portal should show it as long as the -inline is above it on the web page.). Or you could have the users physicaly goto the related database and create a new portal record (which is what IWP does).

Lolz, I already began with the scripts wink.gif" border="0

Inline action is not possible, i'm working with 4.0

With the script, I did as you said. the record is made, and open, but I can't seem to manage to edit it.

Strange?

You are running scripts. You are going to have problems.

You will find four earlier (Sept.) posts on this forum which relate to running scripts and their problems. All the code you need to develop this is posted. A lot can be copied and pasted. You would do yourself a favor to familiarize yourself with the problem. See the posts about Entertaining scripts.

In fact, you would be well served to go back to the first part of this year and research the earlier posts on scripts and the web.

Your confidence will be shattered one way or another.

I am, as far as I know, the only one to develop a workaround to the problems. Good luck.

He may not want to use -inline, but that is exactly what I need for my application. Do you know the specifics on syntax?
