I see another person has posted on printing breaks and I'm not sure the answers given apply to my situation and whether my question is redundant but I need to ask it.

I am printing a large print job where I need to pull items off the output tray of our printer at certain points. Assume for a moment that I have a field with values of a, b, c, d, e, f and I sort the records by this field so the records are grouped a, b, c, d, e, f.

I want to then print all records but stop at b so I can pick up the print job and then continue printing and pick up print job c and then stop and stop at d to pick up print job c, etc. until the job is done.

Is there a way to embed this logic into the print run?

Thank You!

If you know all values of that field in advance you could create a script that applies different database filters and displays a print dialog before starting each filtered job..

Can't think of anything else, sorry.
