I have Filemaker Advanced. How do I print the actual criteria for a scripted find request, besides doing a print screen?
With FMPA 14 open the Script Workspace, select the scrip that you want to print; then in the File menu choose Print. This will print out the steps in a script.
Whether you get your find criteria depends on how you structured the Find in the script. If you have it as a Find [Restore] the criteria won't print per se. If you you use a series of Set Fields to define the find then that would print out.
... scripts steps here ?
Enter Find Mode [ ]
Set Field [ YourTable::YourField to your criteria ]
... repeat with other criteria or duplicate find requests for an 'or' find
... the rest of you script here ...?
Another alternative is to use Set Variable which can be used by a Find [Restore]. Since you set the variables outside and before the Find they would likely also show up in the script where you defined the variable(s) to be used and could then be printed out.
The advantages of doing it this way is for easier trouble shooting if you are not getting the results you expected.
Perform the find
Make a new script
Add "Perform Find[ Restore ]" step, then the criteria is saved.
Print the script
A perfect 10 as usual!!
