if i'm in a layout for one of my solution's many tables, and want to execute a script that needs to be executed from another table, is there a way to execute the script without having to change the current layout to the layout for that table (from which the script must be executed)?

i am clicking on a row in a portal, relating to another table which is a join table, and executing a script from that join table which first brings up a dialog box. the trouble is - while switching layouts to the join table in order to trigger the script with the dialog box, the join table layout just sits there until the dialog box is evaluated, and then the script returns me to my original table. the join table is not meant to be seen by the user. how do i bypass actually seeing the join table but still execute the script?

thanks much for your Filemaker genius, in advance

I can't reproduce this problem, but try adding a Freeze Window script step before switching layouts, and make sure you don't have a Refresh Window while on the other layout.
