Omitting Records

Omitting records does not delete them from your database but simply hides them from view. In that sense, omitted records are the reverse of the found set generated by a Find request. When you perform a Find, the records not shown are what FileMaker calls the omitted set. Used with the Find and Sort commands, the Omit command allows you to quickly make a selection and then invert it by finding all the records not in that selection.

To omit one record:

1.
In Browse mode, select the record you want to omit.

2.
Choose Records > Omit Record (Figure 5.27). Or use your keyboard: (Windows) or (Mac).

Figure 5.27. To hide a record from view, select it, then choose Records > Omit Record. Omitting records does not delete them but simply tucks them out of sight.
