Quick Tip:

Switching Layouts
When switching layouts via a script, it's a good idea to switch to find mode first. This will prevent the loading of any records on the new layout. This could be a serious speed issue in a remote connection scenario. If you are performing a find on the new layout then you're already in find mode (i.e. locating a specific record to change). If you need to add a record then perform a search on a field for something that will find no records so when you enter browse mode you have a found set of zero.
