Work with Found Sets across clients, servers, and sessions
FileMaker's scripts always operate on a found set of records. It's one of FileMaker's strengths that allow all users to easily query their data, pull up a resultant found set, and operate on it. And as a core part of the way FileMaker works, one user can be working with his or her found set while another works with an entirely different set at the same time.
There are cases, though, that we need found sets to be communicated across different sessions. You might want to save a found set for another user, or perhaps run a script on a server against a prescribed found set.
Mislav Kos explores techniques for recreating found sets in this extended blog post. His companion file is available here for you to explore and follow-along.
