I feel stupid here, but Hey I admit to being new.

I am performing a script that does a simple find in a layout.

Its a subscript and I throw it a scriptParameter. The scriptparameter is being passed correctly (I checked).

I want to perform a find with that scriptparameter as the Find Request.

Here is the subscript I am using.

Go to Layout["Tasks"(Tasks)]

#this checks to see if the scriptparameter is being pased

Show Custom Dialog ["ScriptParameter""; Get(ScriptParameter)]

Enter Find Mode

Perform FInd [Restore]

When i am in the Edit Find Requests Dialog and I chose the criteria I want to use the scriptparameter as the criteria. So I enter =Get(scriptParameter)

No quotes no other symbols.

Is that the correct way. I have searched SE Using Filemaker 7 and Filemaker Bible 7 and have not found anything that tells me exactly what to enter in the Edit Find Requests Criteria section to access the script parameter.

I Figure this is simple.

Thanks

Jeff
