      Looking for guidance on scripting

      Post

           My first FileMaker Pro project is coming along well. I have never really mastered scripting and need to use a simple script now. I would appreciate some help getting me 'over the hump' please.

           I have set the database up with a 'seleted' field so that users can browse a list of records and tick a checkbox to select the records thay would like to include in the next step (i.e. printing a report). The 'Selected' field is simply  a Checkbox Set with a value list with just one value - 'Selected'.

           That all works fine but obviously, after the report is printed, I need the user to be able to clear the entries in the 'Selected' field. I have been trying to write a script to do this but I am obviously missing the point because whatever I do has absolutely no effect when I run the script.

           THanks in anticipation...
