      Help with script

      I want to create a simple manual link between two records that I set - it's not a true relationship. I just determine that the information in this record is related to information in another record. So I want to jump to this other record by clicking on a button labeled "See Also" that runs the script below.

       

      Need script to:

      Take the data from field "SeeAlso"

      Save it as a variable "&SearchSeeAlso"

      Plug that into a find process

      And find the record that the matching data in its "Subject" field "

       

      Script

      ------------------------

      SET VARIABLE [$SearchSeeAlso ; Value ; Table :: SEE_ALSO]

      ENTER FIND MODE[]

      SET FIELD [TABLE :: Subject ; $SearchSeeAlso]

      PERFORM FIND []

       -----------------------

       Right now, it finds nothing!!!!!
