Find by Record ID
Is it possible to perform a find in a script that searches for a specific Record ID, without defining a field that has the record ID in it?
I am storing Record ID's for specific records using the Get(RecordID function. Is it possiable to perform a find looking for those specific Record ID's, without defining a field in that table that has the Record ID in it?
I've found this...
Which is kind of what I'm trying to do...
From the above link:
Although this script is significantly more robust than the original, it's also much more complex. Because of this complexity, it would often be more appropriate to simply perform a find for the current record's primary keyThis is what I'm trying to do, find a specific record by it's Record ID ( Primary Key that FileMaker auto assigns to it)

Actually, a Primary Key in Filemaker is usually an auto-entered serial number field, not the record ID.
Record ID's are unique, but subject to change if you have to import the records into a different copy of your file (after a crash damages your file or when you deploy an update to name some examples).
