Create a Script for this Report (New Layout/Report assistant)

In this panel of the New Layout/Report assistant, you can automate your report by creating a script for it.

To create a script to rerun this report:

1. Select Create a script.

2. Type a script name to appear in the Scripts menu, or keep the default name.

3. Optionally, select Run script automatically to display an up-to-date report each time you open this layout.


If your layout contains summary data but it doesn't appear in the report when you run the script, you might need to switch to List View or Table View.

When you create a script, FileMaker Pro Advanced includes default steps, which you can modify after you finish the assistant.

If you want to include only a certain subset of the records in the database when you run this report, you can edit the script to include a Perform Find script step after you finish the assistant.
