I have to try this one more time... I'm trying to print labels using the Sun Report extension - which is a really great tool. Yes, I want to do it this way because I want the capability that functions provide me. Printing the labels with Writer just doesn't give me what I need. So my problem is this. The label sheet I'm using has three labels across the page. I have my labels all setup perfectly, BUT... I get the same record printed three times across the page. How can I force report to place three records worth of data across the page? I'm getting a little desperate, so any help at all would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks,
Paul

Well as sort of a general comment you need a Next Record field between each label and you are apparently only get one between rows instead of columns and rows. Hope this gives you hint because I can't help with the Sun Report tool. If you can actually cause it to do columns then that might be the answer.

Yup, I've had that same thought... just don't know how to do it. Also looked for some way to create columns with no luck.

Thanks...

Paul:

While I think I understand what you want . . . I will send you a PRIVATE MESSAGE ( PM ) on the subject.

I do NOT know if you are willing to try it . . . but . . . it is a MACRO . . . that will read your ADDRESS database and put the data . . . three ADDRESS's across.

While it should work, I think, and, you can MODIFY the MACRO to reflect your exact needs, it is a starting place, I think.

Thanks to add [Solved] in your first post title (edit button) if your issue has been fixed / resolved.
