Hi,

How can I make a portal have multiple columns instead of rows?

Well, here's the scenario-

There's one main databse with the informationof companies, identified by 'Identifier' fields.

Then, there are 4 small databases one each for the different operations(ex., restaurants, golf courses, etc) run by each company, which also have 'Identifier of Operating Company' fields.

I am trying to import the contact data for the operations into the main database. I would like the data to appear as:

Operation 1 Operation 2 Operation 3

Address 1 Address 1 Address 1

Address 2 Address 2 Address 2

City, State Zip Code City, State Zip Code City, State Zip Code

Phone Phone Phone

Fax Fax Fax

How do I do this? Please help. Thanks in advance.

You really don't want to know the answer. You can't have horizontal portals. You would have to emulate this operation with multiple relationships, one for each column. To "scroll" right and left you will need to juggle the global fields used to select the records displayed in each of these relationships. This same technique is used to create matrix views of related data, calendar views, etc.
