Being very new to FM 9, I have taught myself scripts, even managing to get one to pause, waiting for user input. However, I want to go one step further and have not been able to get it to work. I am using ScriptMaker because I am not a very good programmer.
I have a table of referral information - one of my fields is Customer No. I want the user to be able to input which customer number they are searching for. However, when I try to add the custom dialog box to the script, I get the error: There are no valid criteria in this request. Type a valid request before clicking Find. Here's my script:
Go to Layout (I specified the layout "Customers" in the "Specify" box)
Show Custom Dialog (In the Options, on the General Tab, I put "What is the Customer Number?" in the Message box. I then went to the Input Field tab and specified that I wanted it to Show input field #1, "Customers"
Can anyone tell me what I am doing wrong? All the books, posts, webpages I can find just don't spell it out clearly enough for this newbie.
Thank you in advance!
