Not sure how to handle this?

I have a jobs database with a portal of a line items database. Each line will have a code ID, description, price and quantity field, that's not problem. What I would also like to have is a bill of materials for each line item that I can put toegther when creating each line item.

It seems like this may be able to be done by using a portal of materials inside the line items portal, but it doesn't seem to work.

Is this the right approach? Can a portal be placed inside another

portal?

Thanks for the help!

FileMaker does not allow portals within portals. You could, however, have your line items link to yet another related file, via a "Go to Related Records" script step. You can have this file come up in a small window, in such a way that it appears to be a pop-up window, by clicking a button in your line items portal row.

There are probably other ways to tackle this, too. Feel free to ask more questions as you progress.
