Management of Lists - hand-selecting list items from a portal

Sorting and grouping items from a related table is one of the central tasks for which relational databases are frequently used. They are particularly good at this task, especially when the associations between items and groups can be easily identified.

There are times, however, when it is necessary or desirable to group records by hand - to assign them to groups and, perhaps, to re-assign them at need - whether allocating gifts to recipients or backordered items to invoices or any of myriad other conditions for which there is no determining element in the data. In such cases, users need a clear and efficient process by which to locate unassigned items and 'attach' them to the current record. With FileMaker Pro, nothing could be easier.

This demo shows a disarmingly simple technique by which items can be moved between one portal and another. The portal on the left lists the unassigned items from which the user can choose, while a portal on the right shows the list of items chosen so far. A single click adds an item to the list on the right, simultaneously removing it from the portal at the left. Items can be removed from the list and returned to the pool of unassigned items just as easily.
