Specifying the view has nothing to do with which records from the layout's table are part of the found set for that layout and are thus visible in the list.
You'll need to perform a find for the records that are not closed.
If you are using FileMaker 10 or 11, you can use a script trigger to perform A script that does this find every time the user selects the layout from the layout drop down.
In FileMaker 11, you can enter layout mode, select Layout Setup... and select the script triggers tab to see a list of available script triggers for your version of Filemaker. OnLayoutEnter is the name of the trigger you'd use in FileMaker 11.
