Would like to call "sub-routine" scripts

We have the case where many of our test cases do the same verification of table columns (sorting, filtering, etc.). We designate the column and perform the action. These actions are the same for every column. It would be really nice to have the ability to designate a block of script lines as a "sub-routine" and then reference that sub-routine anywhere within the script.
