User working in Preview mode

Recommended Posts

I have a number of layouts that you reach via buttons that run scripts to choose records, sort, etc. and then goes to layout. On the layout in browse mode I give the user two buttons (unprintable), one to Print and the other to go back to the menu where they came. I have a report that uses 2 subsummaries and one body line. In browse the report is meaningless. It has to be seen in Preview mode. However, I don't know how to give the user the ability via 2 buttons to either print the report or return to the menu. Is there any way to do this in a preview?

Buttons are not available in preview mode.

Have you thought about putting a script on the scripts menu?

If you could upgrade to vs. 10, sub-summaries are available in Browse mode.
