Import the xls data into a separate table with a calculation field, cCorrectionKey is set to return "Yes" as its text value.
Define this relationship:
Publications::PubID = ImportTable::PubID AND
Publications::Correction = ImportTable::cCorrectionKey
Set up a layout based on ImportTable that lists all the fields from Publications that you want to see and/or edit.
Perform a find on this layout that puts an asterisk in a never empty field from Publication such as PubID and you'll see the list you've specified.
Also, If your version of FMP has the "match all record in current found set" option for Go To Related Record, you could perform this find then use GTRR with this option to pull up a found set of all the records on a layout based on Publications.
