Script to show all entries beginning with a particular letter
Posted 29 February 2012 - 12:13 PM
This searches cell 'Name' of every record for instances where the leading character is 'A' or 'a':
Sort [Restore,No dialog]
Show All Records
Go to Record/Request/Page [First]
Allow User Abort [On]
#Show this record The problem is here, I am looping through each record, and it determines the appropriate records alright, but how do I get it to display all of those records and only those records.
Go to Record/Request/Page [Exit after last,Next]
Go to Layout ["Table"]
If anyone can help me with this, I would really appreciate it. I know my way around FileMaker, but I am hardly accomplished. Most of my scripts rely heavily on my knowledge of AppleScript, to give you an idea. I am using FileMaker 6 on MacOS 10.6.8 (Snow Leopard)

Slightly off-topic: you are wasting your time learning version 6. There was a BIG change starting with version 7 and you will have a lot of unlearning to do when you upgrade.
