The Genre data is already arranged like this:
Genre::ID (Unique Key)
The Platform data is 'simple'. ID and Name. But each item could be multiple platforms. (Example #1 vs. Example #2)
An item can have multiple Genre Categories related to it, and those usually have a single choice from within their Category, but might have multiples.
It's supporting the possible multiples that I'm trying to work out. At this point there's 15 possible Genre Categories that each Item could have a selection from. Most have 4-6 of them.
Example 1: Items::Table on the left, Genre::Table on the right, with some Genre Categories (Genre, Perspective, Pacing, Gameplay, Interface, Setting) and their sub-options.
This one has just one sub-option per category.
Example 2: The Gameplay Genre Category has two sub-options related to it.
Example Genre Table content:
Just cracking the surface on One to One and One to Many relationships, I don't think this scenario is quite covered this way.
Would each of those Genre Categories be portals showing only their related category ID?
I presume that I would add fields to the Items::Table so I can pull related records:
But those only support one relationship.
Would I make value lists from those Genre Categories and Platforms and set them as tick box fields?

How do I set a field with a value list item from a script, from a set of tick box values? .. or remove a value list item, but leave whatever else is there alone?
Looks like GetValue with the name of the value list and the position # of the value, but I'm sure that also means that if I change that value list, I need to change any scripts that reference them by position # too..
Something like detecting if a string is already there, and if not add it, surrounded by C/Rs, unless it's the first item entry?
For the first time a field is set, I presume I could just Set Field (field ; "Value List Item"), and if there's only one entry/line in it, just clear it. But if there's already a value there, I just want to select an additional one.

After completing an initial sync to my test iPad (starting with an empty clone) none of my value lists that reference fields are working. Instead I get a message saying "No Matches Found". Value lists with custom values still work.
According to the email I received after the sync completed, all of the records required for the values lists were successfully synced.
Has anyone seen this before?
Totally not sure if I've put this thread in the right topic category, as I'm not even sure how to go about this. First, I'd like to be very clear on the fact that, if possible, this will be done without scripting. I'm hoping for some kind of calculation. IDK. Anyway, I'm trying to copy or Calc one field from an older record to its newest match (using BatchNum field to match). The two fields are different fields (FormNum is the ID number field) (RefID is the the reference field for FormNum ). RefID would allow the user to find the last time the same arrangement of data (FormNum being its ID number) was used. It's meant as sort of a skipping stone effect, if that makes sense.
My thought was to create a filtered value list of some kind and just set RefID with the highest ID number from FormNum, prior to the newest entry. Or organize by newest Date Created, prior to the newest entry. Again, IDK.
I'm quite stumped and hope this rambling makes sense to you very helpful people. Thanking you in advance....

I have 3 tables: Person, Session, and Contract where Contract is a join table.
I am in the Session table layout, in a Contract portal. I have a field – Trainer Name in the Contract table – where I want to select the name of a person from a list of people in the Person table. The Trainer Name field is a dropdown list using values from the Trainer value list “Person::__k_p_Person and Person::Name_Full”. I have tried numerous configurations with table instances and I either cannot alter the Trainer Name field at all, or I get a “?”.
After the Contract record is created, I want it to show up in a Contract portal on the person’s record in the Person table.
Each person will teach multiple sessions.
Each session has multiple trainers.
I have foreign keys in the Contract table for Person and Session.
