Hey All! I am new to the site and have been working with filemaker just a few months and love it. Wanted to know if someone could help me with what is probably a simple question.

I have a data file and I need to find about 100 different zip codes within that are inthe file (there are about 3000). Is there a better way to do it than just manually entering each one, adding a new request, entering again, etc?

Your help is much appreciated! :

If the zip codes fall within a range, or a group of ranges, that could save you some find requests. Example: 98765...98777 finds those two zip codes and everything in between. If you have only a few exceptions that aren't in a range, you could make omit requests for those at the end.

Another approach is to create a global field, and type all the desired zip codes into the field. Make a relationship from this field to your zip code field, and then make a button and/or a script that goes to the related records.
