Finding records not working

Recommended Posts

FM 8.5 When I use a global field as the criteria in the Find Script Step, the find does not succeed.

However, if I use the steps Enter Find Mode, Set field , Perform Find, it works. In the Set field step I enter the global global field.

Why is this?

You cannot access global fields directly in Find Mode (and certainly can't find for a global value).

To find in a field for a value that's stored in a global, use script steps like:

Enter Find Mode []

Set field [ field ; global ]

Perform Find []
