Repeating Portals

I've created a portal, but instead of seeing a set of different records, I see that every row of the portal shows exactly the same data.

This indicates a mismatch of table occurrences. Specifically, it suggests that although the portal is set to look at records from table occurrence A, the fields you've chosen to display in the portal are actually from table occurrence B. Because it's possible to have several different table occurrences that are based on the same underlying table, it's possible to see the same field list for several different table occurrences. Nevertheless, if the portal and the fields displayed in it draw from different table occurrences, you probably won't get a meaningful display, even if the different table occurrences are all based on the same underlying table.

Accidental Delete Restrictions

I set up a cascade-delete relationship between my Customer table and my Invoice table so that when I delete a customer, all related invoices are deleted as well. But when I try to delete a customer, it tells me I don't have sufficient privileges. I checked my privileges and I do have delete privileges in the Customer table.

Check to make sure that you have delete privileges on the Invoice table as well. To perform a delete operation successfully in FileMaker, a user needs delete access to any and all records that are to be deleted. If you have delete privileges for customers but not for invoices, the entire deletion operation is forbidden.
