Whether manually or in a script...
enter find mode
put "Architecture Outbuildings" in the tag field
Perform the find.
Unfortunately, that doesn't work manually. And I admit, wouldn't know how to do this search in a script.
It does work manuallly, but I included quotes that shouldn't be there. Try it without the quotes.
I tried with quotes and without quotes, to no avail. Filemaker is searching as if "Architecture Outbuildings" is one keyword, not two. Because there is no such keyword, Filemaker does not return any records from the search.
Then I am assuming something about your database incorrectly. How have you set up your database for these keywords.
If you have data in a field like either of these two examples, what I am specifying should work:
The Outbuildings used at this site are good examples of Victorian Architecture.
The assumption I've made is that both values exist in the same field as separate words within that same field of the same record. If this is not the case, please describe what you do have here.
Example 2 is more reminiscent of our database. If you refer to the screenshot in my original post, you will see that the record is a letter (dated October 9, 1771). We've then "tagged" this record with keywords, which are essentially subjects, that describe the content of the letter. In the above record, "Friends" and "Health" subjects (and subsequently tagged as keywords) within record #10014. My goal would be to find all the other records that also discuss Friends AND Health. I've only figured out how to search for records that contain the keywords Friends OR Health (or Architecture OR Outbuildings). Is there something amiss in the scripting that isn't allowing for an AND search within the same field? For what it's worth I can do AND/OR searches in different fields.
Actually, it is not, as you appear to have a related table of records--the detail I missed with this suggestion.
You want all records in Sources that have related records with both key words--one with Architecture and one with Outbuilding.
You can do this with a two stage find.
Step 1. Enter find mode and specify "Architecture". Perform the find.
Step 2. Return to find mode and sepcify "outbuilding". Instead of Perform find, select "constrain found set" from the requests menu.
This can also be scripted.
Hooray; it worked! Thank you so much for the advice and for being so incredibly patient. Consider me in your debt!
