    FileMaker Pro 8 has added a two new functions; Exit Script and Get(ScriptResult). These scripts are designed to work together with a parent script and a subscript. Together they offer several advantages:


    1. Eliminate the need for global storage fields.

    2. Eliminate the need for multiple (3 or more) scripts to pass script parameters.

    3. Exit Script can acquire and pass data easily from non-related tables. No relationships are required.

    4. The Exit Script results can be stored in local and global variables for further processing.

    5. Exit Script can pass more than one variable.

    6. Can be used to control the logic of the parent or additional subscripts.
