routine for attaching multiple instances of xrefs

(OP)
Below is a routine for attaching xrefs. works but have one problem. With every activation of a new layout tab the open dialog appears. i would like to have the dialog apper only once and attach the same xref across the layout tabs. any help would be good.

CODE

;insert all layouts

(defun insert_all_layouts    (/ lay layouts *acad* *doc* )
        (COMMAND "FILEDIA" "0")
    (vl-load-com)
    (setq    *acad*    (vlax-get-acad-object)
    *doc*    (vla-get-activedocument *acad*)
    layouts    (vla-get-layouts *doc*)
      )
    (vlax-for lay    layouts ; step through layouts
    (vla-put-activelayout *doc* lay) ; activate layout
    (if    (= (vla-get-activespace *doc*) 0) ; If in paperspace
    (if (= (vla-get-mspace *doc*) :vlax-true); in mspace viewport
    (vla-put-mspace *doc* :vlax-false) ; inactivate vp
    ) ; endif
    ) ;endif
    (setq ref (getfiled "Select Drawing to Attach as Xref..." "p:/jobs/" "dwg" 16))
    (COMMAND "-XREF" "ATTACH" ref "0,0" "1" "1" "0")
    ;(vla-PSPACE *acad*)
    )
    )
    (defun c:Ial ()
    (insert_all_layouts)
    ;(COMMAND "PDMODE" "1")
        (COMMAND "TILEMODE" "0")
    (COMMAND "FILEDIA" "1")
    )
