Title

save as PDF wonky

Post

I have a table that has 4 layouts (ways) of showing the data, depending on the type of record.

 

I created a script that goes through each record and depending on the type of record, switches the layout and then appends THAT page to the pdf.

 

What you end up with is a multiple page pdf file, but a different layout for each page of the PDF.

 

The problem is filemaker always appends the FIRST record of the found group to the pdf file, even though I have gotonextrecord script step in the loop. It is maddening. I don't have a bloody clue what could be wrong. When I go through the script with the script debugger, step by step (which I have done about 20 times now) I can see the script change the record number (go to next record), switch the layout based on record type, append the current record to the pdf and continue. But when I open the PDF file, it's all the first record.

 

Has anyone else had this problem?
