Exporting one record from found set


I've written a script to find a record based on ID# then export that record to a file. The problem is that the export always export all the records in the db. I thought that export only exported the found set. What am I doing wrong?


Here's my script steps:


New Window []

Show All Records

Enter Find Mode [Pause] - user enters ID#

Set Field [my field here]

Perform Find []

Omit Record

Show Omitted Only

Export Records [No dialog; "Export_to_Ship.fp7"; Unicode (UTF-16)]

Show All Records

Close Window [Current Window]


Even when I find a record and simply use the export command, it still exports all records.

Thanks for your help.
