Splitting not really covered by any hint.

If you're using FileMaker, you don't have to do any splitting. You can script the whole process of printing a single page and giving it a name based on a field value. This has been available with 10.2.6 and is covered at Apple's applescript web site.

Thanks for the URL referenced above. (sent off this forum http://www.apple.com/applescript/print/)

Unfortunately, the print dialog is not scriptable. You can process the output of the print dialog using an AppleScript, as described in the URL you sent. There is not currently control over the dialog itself.

This capability is slated for Panther (10.3), but currently there isn't any way to do this. In my situation, there are also FileMaker issues that prevent me from printing individual records, as some total fields do not calculate properly. I still need a solution that will split PDFs.
