omitting found records

good day!

i'm trying to get a script to omit records that have certain values in a particular field. i used the perform find script function with omit records indicated, but all the records continue to end up in the final product. what does [Restore] mean in the script? is it putting the records back in?

i'm afraid i'm a bit rusty on filemaker, as i only manage one database which has worked well enough for our purposes for several years. now, i'm trying to do a little streamlining and finding i don't remember much about what i was doing when i originally set it up.

thanks

Enter Find Mode[] ~uncheck the Pause checkbox

Set Field [MyField; "Value I want to Omit"]

Omit Record

New Record/Request

Set Field [MyField; "additional Value I want to Omit"]

Omit Record

Perform Find[] ~do not check the Specify checkbox

Test with above script. If it doesn't do what you want then you may need to better describe your specific script.
