FMP 7 Perform Find Script step

Post

I have a database where I want users to perform a find with 2 buttons and drop-down value lists. The first button triggers the 'Enter Find Mode' script step; no pause, no specify find requests. The second button triggers the 'Perform Find' script step. The idea is that the user would hit the first button to enter find mode, select the criteria of the find from 2 drop-down values supplied by value lists, then click the button that triggers the 'Perform Find' script step. I've looked for a way to do this by specifying the find request, but I can't see how I would set up or edit a find request to accept what's in the drop-down lists I want to use.

 

It seems like in FM 6, you could perform the find manually, then the criteria would be there when you went to build the script. I've been looking for a way to get this script running the way I described, but so far the solution is eluding me. Any ideas? 

 

Thanks in advance!
