I have 5 URL fields as buttons which are used to print out a respective form.  Rather than having to click each button to print out the specific form, I'd like to click one button which can print all 5. My current buttons are as follows:

How can I combine these 5 buttons into 1?

URLRoot() & "db/" & [_DBID_SA_M_1016] &"?a=printr&rid=" & [Maximum Record ID# of 1013's]

URLRoot() & "db/" & [_DBID_SA_M_1015_CERTIFICATE_COMPLIANCE_AIRCRAFT_ACQUISITION_AND_INDUCTION] &"?a=printr&rid=" & [Maximum Record ID# of 1015's]

URLRoot() & "db/" & [_DBID_SA_M_1016_MAINTENANCE_PROGRAMS_PREVIOUSLY_OWNED_AIRCRAFT_ACQUISITION_AND_INDUCTION_CHECKLIST] &"?a=printr&rid=" & [Maximum Record ID# of 1016's]

URLRoot() & "db/" & [_DBID_SA_M_1019_ENGINEERING_CONFORMITY_CHECKLIST] &"?a=printr&rid=" & [Maximum Record ID# of 1019's]

URLRoot() & "db/" & [_DBID_LATEST_SA_M_1054_AIRCRAFT_INDUCTION_CHECKLIST] &"?a=printr&rid=" & [Maximum Record ID# of 1054's]

Normally the URLs can be sequenced together, but I don't think that it will work on your case as when you go to print a record, there is user interaction required to select the printer and printing features such as color/ black & white and page ranges and orientation (portrait vs landscape)

I was hoping that it would open a new tab up for each form. That way the print menu popup comes up in each tab and the user just has to click print provided the printer is already correctly setup.
