You can't navigate directly via calculation without an event trigger plugin. But there are very few occasions where this would be required - there are usually other approaches. What is the calculation? And from where to where do your Users need to navigate based upon it?

The calculation is for navigating from a data entry layout to the printed layout then back again.

We have many, many layouts and we were hoping to write a script that not only gets you from the data entry layout to the printed and back again but to the specific ab you were on.

Each tab has an identifier field and we were hoping to get you back to that tab by using its identifier.

While you could script such a thing using the calculation option in the Go to Layout[] script step, followed by one trick or another to jump to the right tab, I'd try a simpler approach:

1. Make the Print script jump back to the original layout after printing using Go to Layout [ original layout ]. This doesn't jump to the previous tab though, so you'd still need to script that part.

Or

2. Instead of switching the layout for the current window, put the print layout in a new window, then just close that window after printing.
