Adding a New Request

FileMaker calls this adding a new request because you're adding search criteria to an existing request. This differs from simply modifying a Find because it's creating a logical Or search, which requires searching one field for two or more criteria.

To add to a Find request:

1.
If you've already performed your first Find and now are in Browse mode, choose Records > Modify Last Find (Figure 5.16). Or use your keyboard: (Windows) or (Mac). Now choose Requests > Add New Request or use your keyboard: (Windows) or (Mac).

If you're still in Find mode, choose Requests > Add New Request (Figure 5.17). Or use your keyboard: (Windows) or (Mac).

Figure 5.17. To add to a search, choose Requests > Add New Request.


2.
A blank version of the selected layout fields will appear below the ones you previously filled in. Type your additional search criteria into the appropriate fields (Figure 5.18). Note: In this example only the street has been changed, but the price could be changed as well.

Figure 5.18. When you add a search request to an existing one (what FileMaker calls Add New Request), a blank request form appears below the one you previously filled in.


3.
Continue adding requests just as you did in Step 3. When you've added all the requests, click Find, or press (Windows) or (Mac).
