Assistance with creating a search
I am trying to create a button that will search a particular field after which it will generate a report that will display the all the records that the search field matches. Any ideas.
Something like this?
Set Variable[$Search; Yourtable::yoursearchfield]
Enter find mode
Set Field [Yourtable::yourfieldtobesearched; $search]
Set error capture[on]
That's a simple outline. Many variations are possible depending on what you want to do. If your search field is a global field, you can even make the above script a line shorter.
