Script Steps

Now that you know how to create scripts (you did read the previous chapter, didn't you?), it's time to expand your repertoire. FileMaker has a script step for just about everything you can do from the menus and status area. You can use any combination of these steps with script techniques like looping, branching, custom dialog boxes, and more to automate just about anything FileMaker can do. Major areas of scripting include working with field data and records, finding, sorting, working with windows and files, and printing. This chapter is a compendium of stepsand boatloads of scripting possibilities.
