Display Found Set alongside search fields in Form Mode?

Post

I'm designing a simple email list db with a Form View "list builder." The view context is a People list with contact info fields. The goal is to perform a search of the People list and export the found set as a CSV or TSV file for uploading to an email service.

On the left side of a form I want to display a set of fields to use for searching. To provide the user with a view of the resulting subset of People, I want to provide, on the right side of the form, a scrollable list of the found set.

I had thought this might work with a portal, but I haven't found a way to reference the found set in a portal.

Any suggestions would be much appreciated. I'm a complete newbie with FMP11Adv, but I'm familiar with db concepts.
