Hi There --

I have a products table with a products detail join table, with a "product key" tying them together.

I am trying to get a layout working where I can have multiple products on the page (six on a page, in my graphic example).

I am very well aware of portals and relationships, but the hitch that I have is I want to have different positions for the record information.

In other words (refer to picture for clarification) -- basically have a product name (heading) and then a portal to the product info, and have a picture on the (right) or (left) of the portal.

I tried numerous variations on "GetNthRecord", but altough it would work fine with a full report, if I did a found set, it would show consecutive records from the master table, not from the found set.

I hope this is clear... I'll kick myself if there's a simple answer : )

Thanks for reading! : )

"Join table" - joining to what? it looks like you have only a parent table of Products, and a child table of Details.

I am trying to get a layout working where I can have multiple products on the page (six on a page, in my graphic example).

What is the purpose here? Is this for printing out? Your picture shows scrollable portals - obviously, that's not going to work for prints.

I'll kick myself if there's a simple answer : )

I don't think you are in any danger...
