Chapter 7. Creating Simple Scripts > Creating Sub-Scripts

Creating Sub-Scripts

You can create small sub-scripts that do one or two specialized tasks, then combine them with a more generic larger script to execute a variety of actions. These scripts may only contain one step apiece, but they allow you to retain a variety of settings without having to re-search or re-sort each time you want to create a variation on one script idea. For example, if you frequently have to sort your files by last name, you can preset your database with this sort, then create a sub-script that only has a Sort step in the script. Then you can add this sub-script to any other script—for updating accounts payable or analyzing account payment patterns—as you need it. We use this strategy to create a search script for payments by check.
