Search/Find Problems

I understand how to use the find mode.

However, something strange is going on when I press the FIND button I created. It points to the script:

PERFORM FIND [RESTORE]

GO TO LAYOUT[FORM]

EXIT SCRIPT

For some reason, my Position field is always set to "Designers" even though the blank find form is empty. And no matter what I try to find, (employee name or another position), it always shows the designers... using my find button. Otherwise it's ok when I press the filemaker's FIND button.

Strange!

All I want to do is Search based on what is inside a field. (This is so simple but I cant' do it with a button) What is the best way?

Thanks,

J

When you created the script, it "restored" the latest find request you had done. If you want to perform a manual search, the script steps are:

Go to find (pause)

Perform find

Make sure "restore" is unchecked!

Other script steps (such as "go to layout" etc.) are optional -- the "Exit Script" step is unnecessary.

HTH,
