Part II: Working with Records and Files > Finding and Sorting Records

Chapter 5. Finding and Sorting Records

Finding and sorting records are like two halves of the same process. Together, they give you the power to spotlight particular records in a particular order. That ability allows you to complete such mundane work as correcting entry errors as well as big-picture tasks like analyzing trends.

With Find you can hunt down a record that needs changing without having to go through the records one by one. While records normally are displayed in the order they were created, the Sort command lets you arrange the view to what best suits your needs.

Virtually every Find or Sort you do can be set up as a script using FileMaker's ScriptMaker. Creating a script for a complicated Find allows you to save it for future use. For more information, see Using Templates and Scripts.
