Search for a particular date

Post

Hi,

 

I think I am being quite thick here - struggling to sort out a button that performs a find, then prints the result and closes the window.  I am ok with the rest of the script, however I do seem to be failing miserably to script the find based on an input by the user.

 

This is what I have done so far for the script:

 

Show Custom Dialog ["Find records"; "Enter date below"; MDT minutes::_gf_mdt date] - _gf_mdt date is a global field in the MDT meeting table that holds the minutes

New window

Go to Layout ["MDT minutes and actions - all" (MDT Minutes)] - this is based on the MDT meeting table

Show All Records

 

This is where I am now struggling; what I need to do is find all the records that match the date entered.

 

I tried using Perform Find, however, the _gf_mdt date is greyed out and I am unable to use MDT date = _gf_mdt date

 

 

Am I doing this completely wrong?

 

Mark
