 Setting Pages for Layouts

Hello,
    Happy New Year. What would Jimmy Stewart think if he could've found
that one of the best parts of "....a wonderful life" takes place in the
amazing
community of newsgroups; especially this one. Thanks to all. John, Bridget
James
&c.
    Having struggled long enough with sliding, am opting to have reports be
three discreet pages/layouts.
    -first page, customer information (lots)
    -second page, invoice
    -third page, totals/summaries
Would it make most sense to script?
    Go to Layout(blah1)
    Print
    Go to Layout(blah2)
    Print
    Go to Layout(blah3)
    Print
Thanks

You could be more specific about your needs/problem, but off the top of my
head I would say no. When you are building a layout in layout mode you can
opt to see the page breaks, so you can place some fields in one page and
others in an other, etc.. For many needs I would guess this would suffice
and be simpler.

From a scripting point of view, it would make more sense to script three
separate print scripts, one for each job.  This way you will be able to
store different page setups for each script if necessary (and any other
stored settings pertaining to each script - one per script, remember).
You might also want to think about doing some error capturing in there
(what happens for example if someone decides to cancel the print command
script - where do they end up?).  Then when each individual script works
well, you can link them all together using a master script that performs
each script as a subscript.  Breaking scripts into modules is more
efficient for a lot of reasons.  Easier to read. Easier to track down bugs
and to make changes. Ability to use the scripts as subscripts in other
scripts. In this instance, it would also provide you with the with the
additional option of printing a single layout rather than all three on
those occasions when all three are not required.
