My script to preform a find with criteria from a drop down list only works with first value in list -- is it possible to specify for other values?


I am writing scripts that will preform a find for specified values in a dropdown list and then take you to different layouts based on the find. The first script I wrote, in which the specified criteria is the top value in my dropdown list, works fine. But the second script, in which the criteria is the second choice from the list, only goes to the layout -- it seems to find all records that have ANYTHING entered in that field. The values are words "Artifact", "Exhibit", etc. is it possible to make this work? I'm using FileMaker Pro 11.

When I do a find and type in the word it works, but this script with different criteria in the same field is not working. Thanks in advance!

Question owner

Sorry if I was unclear. This is not web development. My question is about Filemaker Pro -- When I joined this forum it was through the Filemaker help link. And I'm not interested in sharing the database thru the web. Just trying to write a Find script with specified criteria. Thanks.
