Filter Value List in Portal

Recommended Posts

Greetings -

I am working on an job quote system. The tables are

Clients - fields - the usual stuff

Quotes - fields - totals, address of job, etc

QuoteDetails - fields - Quantity Manufacturer Part# Cost etc

Items - Database of the items in the QuoteDetails - Manu. Part# etc.

So far things are working well. I have a layout with my quote and a portal for QuoteDetail. QuoteDetail includes fields for Manufacturer, Part# and Description with are data contained in the Items table.

What I'd like to do is this: I create a new line in the portal and enter a Manufacturer so when I go to the Part# field a popup or pulldown appears with only the Part#'s associated with that Manufacturer.

(I can do something similar e.g. a second portal from the Item database and a script to populate the QuoteDetail but I'd like to not do it this way)

I've scoured the forums but have come up dry. Any help will be greatly appreciated.

You need another relationship for this:

QuoteDetails::Manufacturer = Items 2::Manufacturer

Once you have that, define a new value list to show values from the Part# field in Items 2, including only related values starting from QuoteDetails.

Wow, it's so clear now. I don't know why I couldn't get it on my own.

Thank you.
