Multiple find requests in a single script

How can I create multiple find requests in one script? I want to be able to search the same field for the lack of multiple values. I have figured out how to do it from the browse view using the find mode but I need to be able to put about 19 different find requests into one script. Also, in a script how do I search for the lack of a value? When I use the form I just click omit and enter the value into the field. However what do I type in a script to cause it to perform a find on my records and search for the lack of certain values?

Thanks,

Eric Nelson

Script it the same way you'd do it yourself:

code:


Allow User Abort [off]

Enter Find Mode [] <-- no options

--enter request1 data--

New Record/Request

--enter request2 data--

New Record/Request

--enter request3 data--

.

.

.

Perform Find [] <-- no options


Don't select "Restore Find Requests" in the Enter Find Mode or Perform Find steps.

If your search is always the same, then you can set it up by hand then save it in a script with a single Perform Find [Restore] step.

If you'd rather build the find in the script, use the Omit Record script step to check the Omit box in Find mode:

code:


...

Set Field ["searchField",""val1""]

Omit Record

New Record/Request

Set Field ["searchField",""val2""]

Omit Record

...
