      How do i set Preview to NOT go to record one

      Post

           Hello again everyone 

            

           wondering if there is a setting for the preview to prevent it from previewing record one by default. i would like it to preview the current record i am viewing

           i'm sure this is a easy one 

            

           thanks again

               Modify your found set to consist of just the current record and now your first record is also your current record for preview.

               Show All Records
               Omit Record
               Show Omitted Only

               is one method that (usually) isolates the current record into a found set of just that one record, though there are other ways that can be used as well.

                 Phil thanks for all your help 

                 i'm wondering if there is a way for a user to do this, basically what i'm trying to do is create a printable, saveable single page that has a bunch of formatted merge fields and fields that i specify. so the user would push a button and that form is displayed then from there he can just print or save out 

                 im sure there is an easier way to do this than what i'm trying to do 

                 let me know if you have any other ideas 

                 Thanks

                   If you add a button to the layout, the steps I listed before, plus a step to enter preview mode can be put into a script performed by clicking that button.

                   Show All Records
                   Omit Record
                   Show Omitted Only
                   Enter Preview mode [pause]
                   Enter Browse Mode

                   And the button can be set to "hide when printing" in inspector's sliding and visibility section so that it does not appear when the layout is printed or previewed.
