Skip Update of Matching Records

Hey community!


I am currently having a problem "downloading" from my online FileMaker to my offline version of the application.


I have a few tables that I would like to update on my offline version when the user presses a certain button. The button triggers a download script (attached below).


My idea is to only import records that are not matching. For example, if the data has changed update the record, but if it's the same leave it alone. As well as add new records to the table.


This is an attempt to speed up script times, currently it takes roughly 2 minutes for this process to happen and I'm thinking I can cut this down if less records are imported.


If anyone can steer me in the right direction that would be awesome.


Thank you!!!
