Default OnRecordStart - New file with only part of Field change

My data file has a field that has two parts
I only want to create a new output file when the first part of the data changes. See the sample data below.

Can I use an array to only create a new output file when T1 changes to T2 or do I need to split my data into two fields before using it into FusionPro?

Sample data looks like (Sack and Pa is one data field currently)
Sack and Pa
T1 P1
T1 P1
T1 P2
T1 P2
T2 P1
T2 P1
T2 P2

Thanks in advance for any help you can provide

Sure, you can do something like this in OnRecordStart:
var thisFieldPart = Field("Sack and Pa").split(/\s+/)[0];
var previousFieldPart = FusionPro.PreviousRecordFields["Sack and Pa"].split(/\s+/)[0];
if (thisFieldPart != previousFieldPart)
    FusionPro.Composition.OpenNewOutputFile(thisFieldPart + "." + FusionPro.Composition.outputFormatExtension);

I am happy to provide help and answers to questions when I can; however, there is no guarantee that I, or anyone else on this forum, will be able to answer all questions or fix any problems.

How To Ask Questions The Smart Way

The correct spellings are JavaScript, FusionPro, and MarcomCentral (each with two capital letters and no spaces). Acceptable abbreviations are JS, FP, and MC (or MCC). There is no "S" at the end of "Expression" or "Printable"! The name of the product is FusionPro, not "Fusion". "Java" is not is not the same as JavaScript.

Check out the JavaScript Guide and JavaScript Reference! FusionPro 8.0 and newer use JavaScript 1.7. Older versions use JavaScript 1.5.

return "KbwbTdsjqu!spdlt\"".replace(/./g,function(w){return String.fromCharCode(w.charCodeAt()-1)});
