Would someone kindly assist with shedding some light on how I can perform multiple find requests in File maker pro Advanced. i.e the use of the "OR" criteria.
can you post example of what you are trying to find? there are different ways.
Do the first 'FIND' as normal from the keyboard and enter your first search value. Then instead of hitting 'return' to do the find under REQUESTS select 'ADD A NEW REQUEST' and enter the second value. Repeat adding requests for as many values you want to search for. Then hit 'return' or REQUESTS/ PERFORM FIND to complete find.
For example if you had a field "ANIMALS' and wanted to find all CATS and DOGS
Enter CATS in the ANIMALS field
REQUESTS/ADD A NEW REQUEST'
Enter DOGS in the ANIMALS field
REQUESTS/ PERFORM FIND to complete the find.
Carl is correct!
Here is a Knowledge Base article that may also help:

It looks like casystems and beverly have you taken care of. I am going to move this thread from the DevCon Space over to the Discussions Space so you might get more views and additional assistance.
