Title

Using a variable in a find request

Post

Dear Filemaker Gurus:

 

I had wanted to write a script that will find a certain type of records wanted to use a variable in the find criteria.   Filemaker keeps using the variable name ($AcctName) as a literal string to search for rather than the text in the variable.  Is there some way to tell Filemaker to search using the text string contents of the variable or will only literal text searches work (no variable)?

 

Thanks!
