      returning find results in a specified layout

      Post

           I'm trying to design a find function so users can easily get to the entry that they want to update.  It is reached based on a script from another layout:

           Go to Layout["find entry to edit"(main table)]

           enter find mode[ ]

           and I have the layout set up such that it leads the user to input the field values to find the entry they need to update.  Then I created a button that performs the find.  When it performs the find, obviously, it returns the entries in the layout the find was performed in.  Is there a way around this?  It looks kind of silly.  I'm still new to filemaker, so I apologize if this is a really obvious question.  My scripting manual should be here any day now : )
