If Exit Script is used in a sub-script, returns to the main script with or without an optional script result. If the optional script result is specified, the script result is returned and stored in the main script until another sub-script that returns a value is called. The script result gets deleted when you exit the main script. The script result can be stored in a local or global variable for later use.
Example 1 
Performs a find and prints. If no records are found, displays all records and exits the script.
Perform Find [Restore]
If [Get ( FoundCount ) = 0]
Show All Records
Exit Script [Text Result: ]
End If
Print [With dialog: Off]
Example 2 
Prints unpaid invoices. In the Print sub-script, users can choose whether they want to print invoices. If users choose to print, then Exit Script uses a script result to enter “Printed on <current date>” in the Status field.
Main script: Print Unpaid Invoices
New Window [Name: "Invoice List"; Style: Document]
Go to Layout ["Print Invoices"]
Perform Find [Restore]
#Calls the "Print" sub-script defined below
Perform Script ["Print"]
#Continues after the sub-script is completed
If [Get ( ScriptResult ) = 1]
Replace Field Contents [With dialog: Off; Invoices::Status; "Printed on " & Get ( CurrentDate )]
Show All Records
Sort Records [Restore; With dialog: Off]
End If
Sub-script: Print
Show Custom Dialog ["Print Unpaid Invoices"; "Do you want to print unpaid invoices?"]
If [Get ( LastMessageChoice ) = 1]
Print [With dialog: Off]
Close Window [Current Window]
End If
#Uses the Result parameter to pass the user’s choice to the main script
Exit Script [Text Result: Get ( LastMessageChoice )]
