Can anyone correct these fields?

I found an explanation how to print from portals across multiple pages, and the following example was given:

 

In your main file (the one with the portal), define these fields:

Portal Number (Number)

Portal Number Counter (Global of type Number)

Match for Printing (Calculation, Text result)=

Original Match Field & "^" & NumToText(Portal Number)

 

For me, I can't even enter the third and fourth fields. Not enough parameters, wrong this or that.

 

Can anyone help?

I can't even enter the third and fourth fields.

your list only seems to have three fields.

1. Portal Number (Number)

2. Portal Number Counter (Global of type Number)

3. Match for Printing (Calculation, Text result)=Original Match Field & "^" & NumToText(Portal Number)

 

where did you find that explanation?

The solution refers to version 3 and 4. since version 7, it is possible to setup portals to display from any starting row. So now you can just make multiple portals across multiple pages in a preset layout.

 

Portals are meant for screen display. It is more versatile to print directly from the lineitems file, so if you have only say one page of lineitems it won't spew out 5 empty pages in a preset layout.

That's what I did, making 25 different layouts, one with one line, with two, etc. up to 25. Every fresh page a new portal with a later starting row. There aren't any empty pages, it is just that it is mildly annoying (and also to the writers of FMP The Missing Manual agree with me) that a portal cannot be printed with proper page breaks.
