"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years.

Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

in the main table, add a global field, "year"
make a value list: year_list: 2006 and 2007
add this field to the relationship used by the portal and link it to the year of the sub table.
make the year field a popup.
now when you select the year it should filter the sub-records in the portal.
