Title

Reading/Writing records to a table in script mode

Post

I'm new to Filemaker scripting.The supplied documentation leaves somethng to be desired :-)

I've got me a nice script made for processing data file containing info about members of a club. Works great, fine.

 

At the end of my script I want to "save" a sum total. Is it possible to create (= add) a new record in a table during/at the end of a script?

It's possible that the record already exists (the script may be run more often), so I need to be able to save to a:

 

1. existing record (question: how do I identify a specific occurence in a table, then update and save (commit)?)

2. non existing record (question: how do I create and save a new record to a table?)

 

It's probably basic stuff but the documentation supplied fails to enlighten.

Thanks again for the leg-up :-)
