Am currently using Filemaker Pro 12

 

I run a database for the hospital I work at. On the main screen is a portal where, currently, I add new records by going to the first blank line in the portal and manually entering the details in.

 

To make it easier for others to use the database, I would like to have a button on the layout which has the portal which takes users to a layout where they enter the details (date, amount, invoice, receipt, costcentre,summary). When they hit the Enter button on this layout, they are taken back to the main layout - and the portal contains the details entered sorted so that the latest data is on the top line - sorted via date field.

 

Just requesting a file that I can look at so that I can learn how it is done and apply it to the database I currently use.

 

Thanks

I gather the question is how to make the script attached to the button?

 

Actually there will be several scripts e.g. script to go from main layout where portal is to data entry layout, then script to go back to main layout. Also, script(s) need(s) to deal with related records, etc. I am also very interested in seeing the relationship chart!

See if this helps.

 

Using a new window eliminates all the housekeeping involved with getting back to the original parent record. The offset of the new window is for demo purposes only; you would probably not use it so as to make the mechanics invisible to the user.
