I need help writing a script to print out a data in a certain format.Is there any basic scripts that I can follow.
Which format? Some more info would be helpful.
There's a Print Setup script step, and a Print script step, for starters.
I have made a time sheet for my maintenance team for reporting their daily work activity.
The problem is the data is repeatable and I have multiple data columns and I want to be able to print the entire record in a excel spread sheet format so the office can view it
See picture for my data that I have created.I need the date,employee name,deptA thru G total hours.

You will have to create a layout which shows the records you want to print in the way you want.
And you create a script which
* switches to the layout
* finds the records you need
You may want to use a plugin if you need to switch printer, paper format or other print options.
e.g. Monkeybread Software - MBS FileMaker Plugin 6.5
Yes I have done this but the way I want to see it on a page is different.Is there a way just to print just the fields.
To repeat Christian's good advice:
Create a layout that displays the data the way that you want it printed. You can start from a new layout or duplicate a layout that is close to what you want and then modify the copy. Either way once your layout is set up the way you need for printing, you simply switch to that layout and print. (and in some cases, you may have to perform a find and sort records to get the needed results for your printed report.)
