Using Filemaker 5.5 developer

Can someone help me understand what or why this happens? I have the
following:

MainMenu layout with a report button that calls a report layout to print
using a external script. So here is a copy of my external script.

Go to layout["RPT-Team Funds"]
Enter Preview Mode []
Print []
Enter Browse Mode []
Perform Script [External: "Funds"]

Now, when I call this script it performs to go to layout process without
problems but it prints three copies of the MainMenu layout. (I only have
three test records in this database)

I really like Filemaker and would also like to purchase a used copy of
Scriptology from someone if you wish to part with it.

On Go to Layout scriptstep Do you have Refresh Window Checked?

Hope this Helps

Sorry Jim, you shouldn't have to refresh the screen, it's got me baffled
aswell.

The Preview step is overkill, print will always print as if in preview so
you don't need to call it unless there is a need to view the preview before
the print, I use a pause 0.0.0 after gotolayout because sometimes on a fast
machine the script is executed too quickly for the layout to initialize
before the print step.
So a modified script could be:

Enter Browse Mode []
Go to layout["RPT-Team Funds"]
Pause/Resume 0.0.0 #meaning no seconds although the minimum pause defaults
to (or seems to:) one sec.
Print [NoDialog]
Perform Script [External: "Funds"]
