Newbie question: How do found sets tie to layouts?

Post

I am newbie to FMP but well versed in databases and Access.  I am having difficulty understanding how found sets tie to Layouts.

For example...In Access, one has a table or tables.  A query is created based on a table, a query, or related tables.  A form can be built on top of a saved query such that the query is a property of the form.

Can or does FMP have a similar structure?

In FMP, one has a table or tables.  FMP does not have saved queries but has a Saved Find.  FMP does not forms, it has Layouts.

However, how do the Saved Finds get associated with a specific Layout?  And is the underlying data source (Saved Find) always tied to the Layout?  If I save the Layout, is the Saved Find saved with the Layout too?

Appreciate the insight...
