Multiple Look up or Portals

Hello, can someone help?  This is driving me crazy!

I have a multi file database that has some relations.  One file is a contact file with all the people, addresses, etc that has around 100 records.  The other file needs to show 2 of the contacts in one layout in one record.  

I tried setting it up so that when I type in the persons name, it looks up the rest of the contact info for that person and it shows up.  The problem is that when I go to put in the other persons name, it only shows the data from the first person's contact.

I've tried portals, multiple file references, with the same result.  

Any suggestions??

Thanks all, great forum.

EG, what version of Filemaker are you using?
