I am trying to acess data from a table at one end of the relationship through a portal to a table in the other end of the relationship and I don't know how to do it.


Action table:



Staff table:






Appraisal joint table:







Manual table:




Procedure table:






In the Manual table layout I have a tab named Appraisal where I can put the Full Name as well as Job Title and the Department of the Staff that acted as: Originator, Reviewer (Reviewed by) and Approver (Approved by) of the document named Manual.

No problem here, using a portal I can choose who was the originator, the reviewers and the approvers of the Manual.

With the established relationship even the same person can be reviewer and approver. Here is a picture:


The problem surfaces when I am trying to do the same from a portal on the Procedures table.

My goal is to use the established relationship between:

the Staff and Action tables with the Manual table through the Appraisal joint table;


the relationship between the Manual and the Procedure tables.

To choose the names, job titles and departments of the staff acting as originator, reviewer and approver.

I wrongly thought that since the table relationships are rightly established, I could use a portal on the Procedure table layout to get data from the Staff table. But as soon as I set up the portal in the Procedure table layout to do it, I get a snapshot of what currently is on the portal on the Manual layout.

What is the right way to derive data from one end of a relationship (Staff table) into the opposite end (Procedures table)?
