Something seems to be seriously missing here. The demo doesn’t work. The popup shows data from records which does not at all match the actual feeding history.

    Hi, Bruce.
    Thanks for your feedback. We’re updating the demo and will post the revised file shortly.

Seems it still does not work consistently. I have sent in screenshots.

    Hi Bruce,

    Replaced the file. Didn’t see the screenshots, but found the issue you were hopefully referring to.

    Thank you.

Next time just try using ExecuteSQL and populating the results within a Webviewer. Your results within ExecuteSQL can format the data as HTML.

Also, with the right JavaScript library, you can do even more than a portal can do with re-orderable columns and integrated sorting. That would be my preferred method. You can even make things look exactly like all your other portals with the CSS.

    Hi Matt, I agree. Hence I wrote this is just one method. I was thinking about doing a follow-up post with JS. I’ve done some work with DataTables and I loved it.
