Instant Web Publising & ASP - Printing Workaround?


Hi there:

I've noticed that most of the posts on here regarding ASP and Filemaker are about using Filemaker as a backend for a website.  I have something different in mind and need some advice.

I'm trying to find a way to print reports designed in list view in IWP.  Yes, custom web publising would have been better, but they didn't have the budget.  So, I'm wondering if we designed a few standard web pages for reports and stashed them in the root, if I could use the "open URL" script step to pass parameters for a specific found set of records to the stored template which would display a printer friendly pop-up.

Also, all of the articles that reference ASP and Filemaker seem to be for data entry and for desktop configuration.  Can a connection between the two be done at the server level?  It's only needed for the IWP users.

Thoughts?  Or any other suggestions?  There has to be a way...
