Is there a limit on Scripted find requests

I'm considering scripting a series of find requests.

Enter Find Mode
New Record/Request
Set field[x] = value a
New Record/Request
Set field[x] = value b
...
Perform Find

My question is how many request can I have before Filemaker has a problem. What I am considering doing is performing an executeSQL statement to create a list of values to insert into my finds. The list has the protential to to being hugh. So I could possibly have 1000s of find requests before I get to the "Perform Find" script step.

 

What I am looking to do is automate culling out bad records in the database.
