Title

Printing shipping receipt for one individual record at a time

Post

My situation is this:

 

I have a layout called "orders" where I see order information (product, quantity, payment method, etc.).

 

The database table "orders" is related to the database table "customers"; and in the "orders" layout, I have implemented a portal where I can directly see the customer data related to this order.

 

My goal now is this:

 

I want to be able to print a shipping receipt for one record at a time.

 

I created a button called "print receipt". This button navigates me to a layout called "order receipts" which I prepared so that the print-out would fit into my envelopes and display the customer data (which I've set up via merge fields, is that OK?) in the envelopes window, plus the specific order details, etc.

 

But here's the trouble:

 

Everytime I press this button "print receipt", FileMaker generates a shipping receipt for all records, not just the one I had in mind. So I end up with a few dozen shipping receipts instead of the one I wanted.

 

How can this be done - to print one shipping receipt for one order at a time?
