assign scripts to buttons

To finish up with the scripts, we need to assign many of them to buttonsreplacing the previously assigned Do Nothing step with a Perform Script step. In addition, we will make Opening Script into an official opening script, ensuring that it automatically runs each time you open the database.

Assign scripts to buttons. In Layout mode, select a button, choose Format > Button Setup, select the Perform Script step, click the Specify button, and select the script shown in the table below. Repeat for each button.

Note: An opening script can be named whatever you like. I named it Opening Script so it could be easily found in the script lists.
