Change layout during data entry?

I am trying to modify an existing filemaker dbase written by someone else. I have no great programming skills (understatement).

A key field has six choices relating to a hospital site (say) A or B and area of work (say) X or Y or Z.

( choices AX, AY, AZ, BX, BY, BZ )

This is the first field of data entry, is there any way that as this choice is made the Data Entry screen can change to a layout that contains site specific fields and is clearly identifying the Hospital site the record is dealing with?

I am trying for 2 layouts with a common core, of fields on the left side and the right column of fields having a few significantly different fields.

Is this feasible? simply acheived without too much scripting?if the layout choice had different colored flash at top to emphasise which Hospital it related to, would this be 'remembered' within the program?

I have only managed to set up a button that toggles between the 2 layouts, so one has to do this to see info on 2nd layout.

Hope this makes some sort of sense!
