In this example, we show how you can enlarge a found set of records by running the extend found set command. We have 2 buttons for scripted searches. The idea is to click the first button and have a found set returned. The click the second button to add additional records to the found set.

The first button is used to search for companies that have shoes for their market. The second button uses the extend found set feature to add records to the found set. The added records will be for companies that have handbags as their primary market.
