Using Constrain Set to omit in script

3 posts in this topic

Okay, I am sure this is a simple question, but I can't figure it out to save my life. :)

I need to be able to omit records from a found set in a script.

I have the find and everything else related to the exporting, saving, etc. but I don't know how to use the constrain found set in a script to omit.

Can someone help me? Please??? Thanks in advance. :)

I am not entirely sure what your direct needs are so I will post two way to omit. Lets say you want to find all blue objects but omit the squares.

Well you can do a find as such:

Enter Find Mode []

Set Field [ color; "blue" ]

New Request

Set Field [ object; "square"]

Omit Record

Perform Find []

Or, if you do already have a found set of lets say blue objects, then you can constrain it.

Enter Find Mode []

Set Field [ object; "square"]

Omit Record

Contrain Found Set []

Of course if you have explicit criteria, you can just have the criteria directly in the Perform Find [] and Constrain Found Set [] steps.
