In your script, you do these things:
Enter find mode
Set field [Status. Value = "Current"]
Set field [Status. value = "Past"]
This will return all records that have a status of Current and a status of Past. They are independent finds.
There are two "specify" options in the set field step. Set the first to the field you want to set. Set the second to the value you want it set to.
Thanks Bruce and yes you are correct. Sorry I have been on information overload but its starting to sink in thanks to this amazing forum.
the new record/request line is unnecessary.
"the new record/request line is unnecessary."
The New Record/Request in necessary in some FIND situations, although this is typically considered an OR find (as well as a NOT find, if you include the OMIT step). An AND find can also be 'defined' as two or more words in a single field (space separated), as FM will do a 'begins-with' search in the field for each word (order doesn't matter). Another AND find would be to put data into TWO or more fields in a singe Record/Request.
(yes! you can combine AND, OR & NOT, but it can be complex!!)
If Jeremy's answer is correct, then that's an OR find (search for "Current" _or_ "Past" in the same field) and requires the New Record Request while in Find Mode.
Of course. If it's an OR search. Missed the omit requirement.
