I am using FM Pro 6.

I would like to write script that does "find within find results".  

For example, find 4 types of Press from a drop down.  Then find 5 different status (another drop down) within these 4 types of Press.


RE: Find within Find

To find records based on multiple criteria in separate fields (a logical AND search), perform a find, specify the next criteria, then choose Constrain Found Set.

1. In Find mode, perform a find to find all of the 4 types of Press.

FileMaker Pro displays the found set in Browse mode.

2. Switch back to Find mode and type the criteria to narrow the search to 5 different status .
3. Choose Requests menuĀ > Constrain Found Set.

The found set now consists of the 5 different status within the 4 types of Press.
