filtered portals

Recommended Posts

Hello

I have a portal (child table) on a layout (parent table) that I am trying to filter through the database relationship between the tables.

The relationship between the tables is defined in two ways:

1. The parent table's ID is maintained in the child table.

2. A global field defined in the parent table (containing a static value) is associated with a field in the child table.

This relationship is defined through a second instance of the child table.

The problem is that on the layout, only the first record in the child table is displaying in the portal.

Any ideas on why this is not displaying all the associated records?

You need to COMBINE the PARENT ID and GLOBAL field to point to the same table instance.

The 2 child table instances can only be shown in their own portals, so you must make a double field relationship to combine them and set your portal based on that table instance.

I'm not exactly sure what you mean (I'm going to try to work it out), but I need to say that the underlying relationship between the parent and child tables must only be defined as the parent's ID stored in both.

I am trying to filter this view of that relationship with an additional qualifier, but only for this particular layout.

I figured it out--I just forgot to change the fields in the portal to reflect the second table instance.

Thanks for your help..
