    Default Mailing labels continuous feed

    Alpha 5 Version 2

    We're using a continuous feed, dot matrix printer and would like to make a bunch of labels with our return address.

    How do you print more than one label at a time?

    Robert,

    In version 3 there is a field on the label layout that allows the user to choose the number of labels to print of each record. I'm not sure about version 2; I have it but have never loaded it.

    However, you could create a table with a single record for your return address and then copy the record as many times as you want labels. Should go pretty quick just using the cntrl-? that copies records. (
    Sorry I don't know the exact cnrtl key sequence to copy a record. Then print the table on the labels.

    Hope this helps.

    Hi there,

    I have tried what Ohlen Cartmell had put about creating a table with a single record for return addresses and then coping the record as many times as i need labels. It work very well but it is a bit of a slow procedure, does anyone know a quicker way???
