Creating a label report

Creation

  1. To create a "Label" report, click in the quick access buttons:
    • The creation window appears: click "Report" then "Report".
    • The report creation wizard starts. In the wizard, select "Label".
  2. In this wizard, you must specify:
    • the data source of report (data file, query, ...). For more details, see Report data source.
    • the information specific to the creation of labels.

Information specific to the creation of labels

The information specific to the creation of labels is as follows:
  • the number of identical copies that will be printed for each label.
  • the format of labels and/or the format of label sheet. This format can correspond to:
    • a custom format:
      1. Select the "<Custom>" element in the "Make" combo box.
      2. Specify the format of label sheet on which the labels will be printed.
      3. Specify the format of labels.
      4. Specify the number of labels that will be printed across the page width.
    • a preset format:
      1. Select the make of labels used in the "Make" combo box.
      2. Select the model of labels used in the "Model" combo box.
      3. The information specific to the labels used (caption, size of labels and number of labels printed across the page width) is displayed.
        Remark: Check the "Inch" option to display the size of labels in inches.

Modifying the characteristics of labels

Once the "Label" report is created, the characteristics of the labels can be modified at any time: on the "Modification" tab, in the "Report" group, click "Format and labels".

HSpaceThe HSpace property is used to determine and modify the horizontal spacing between labels in a report. This spacing was defined when creating the Label report.
VSpaceThe VSpace property is used to get and change the vertical spacing between the labels in a report. This spacing was defined when creating the Label report.
LabelHeightThe LabelHeight property is used to:
  • Find out the height of labels in a Label report.
  • Modify the height of labels in a Label report.
LabelWidthThe LabelWidth property is used to:
  • Find out the width of labels in a "Label" report.
  • Modify the width of labels in a "Label" report.
