Er sorry: to be clear the "Normal Find Mode" part means when I was testing for finding the data... I SHOULD see only one record. I am finding 77 records, so there is an error here. Now that I know I'm looking for one record, I need a script so they can find it in the future. :D
Go To Layout["Outbound Exception Report" (EVENTS)]
Enter Find Mode 
Set Field [EVENTS::date_ship; Get (CurrentDate)-40 & "..." & Get(CurrentDate)]
Set Field [Events::Tracking_outbound_1; "="]
Perform Find 
And please note that I removed the New Record/Request step. If you keep that step, you are finding records in the date range OR that have an empty field.
PERFECT! Thank you! :D Now I'll check the data manually to verify the code is pulling up the records I want, clean up my test data and this project is wrapped! You guys are the best!
