Special record randomizing condition


     I'm using FMpro 10.  I am making a file for flashcards to export as a PDF to use on my iPhone.  I've numbered the records in the order 1a, 1b, 2a, 2b,,nb where side a = question and side b = answer.

     I would love to be able to randomize a found set of records where records "na" and "nb" are always together.  For example, they would be in the order 4a, 4b, 12a, 12b, 7a, 7b, etc...  It would be even cooler to be able to have b come before a and keep them together.

     I know a scrip would be involved but I can think of a way to do this.  Any help would be appreciated.  Right now I am using a power PC without the Intel chip and can't upgrade to FM12 with FM Go or I would be doing an entirely different setup.
