Complete Field with Button initiated script

in conjunction with my other question about the maximum number of scripts, I realized I've missed a step.

As well as having the button go to the next field, I want the same button and script to enter today's date in a completed date field.

Let's say my conditional field is field 1 and my completed date field is field 2 (is there a convention for naming fields in these questions?). If the answer to field 1 is yes, go to field 3. If the answer to field 1 is no, go to field 4.

so even though I've decided to have a script per variation, I was wondering if I could create one script to have the completed date field have today's date. In non-FM language, I'm thinking the logic is like this

If Field1 <> null

then set Field1 to Today's Date

...If Field 1 = yes go to Field3

...Else go to Field4

End if

Lines 1, 2 and 5 would be the Completed Date script. But the next time I use this Completed Date script it will be with a different field so that needs to be a variable of some sort based on location (?)

Lines 3 and 4 would be the conditional go to a different field script.

I now see that I'm going to have a problem because I want to nest the unique script within the common and repeatedly used script.
