Find Differences

I'm just curious as to the difference between the two scripted find methods that I have found while browsing example files and demos in Filemaker Pro.

The first method I was exposed is:

Enter Find Mode []

Set Field "Fieldx" (Find Criteria)

Perform Find []




vs.




Perform Find [RESTORE]

Taking in to account a fresh found set, is there any difference between the two? The second method seems cleaner to me but it seems less used than the first method.

Not that advice from comment ever needs a second opinion, but I always use method 1, because the criteria is visible in the script.

There are often "elegant" methods to accomplish something in FM, that bury your logic. Great when built, but often impossible to troubleshoot six months later. I try to avoid them.
