Using variables in scripts to perform finds
Moderate user of FMP 10.
Is is possible to use variables to script specific finds? Let's say I want to find all occurrences of FIELD 1 with contents "A" and I've set up a perform script button and I'm parked on a record with "A" in the field.
In the script I would set the variable to be $FIELD1 which should pull "A" from the contents of FIELD 1.
If I choose the perform find script and try to specify the find so that Field 1=$FIELD1 I get nothing.
What am I missing?
I can certainly script to ENTER FIND MODE and set field with the variable, but this strikes me as clumsy.
I think I'm missing something basic.
Thanks in advance...one more related issue coming in a separate post.
