How to pre-fill fields in a form-based find

Last updated: 12 Jul 2002

(An edited version of a post by Carlos A Rodrigues Alves)

In order to pre-fill some or all of the fields when the user doing a form -based find, do the following:

1) Create a 'stored find' with all desired presets criteria
2) Create a macro that runs this stored find and then start a 'find again' search

It probably easiest if you attach the macro to a button. The when you run the macro (or click your button) the stored find is executed and then a find form appears with the stored find criteria already filled in. Then the user can type new criteria on others fields.
