Data driven layout navigation. A button calls a script, passing a layout name as a script parameter. Navigation is to that layout.

Sample Input:
layout name
Sample Output:
layout number


 Then copy & paste into FileMaker Advanced's Edit Custom Function window.

This is my Custom Function and I want to edit it

Discuss:

I need help. I want a script that will allow me to navigate to a specific layout in another table. I have a field on layout A in the Table A, that field has a company name, i want a button that will read that company name and will send me to that particular company (the Layout B) in the Table B. So i am thinking i need to choose my layout by calculation and initiate a search in the company field and then make it go to the right layout. But i cant find the right script. If you can help me please.
