Print a whole page of labels for one contact

Is it possible to print a whole page of mailing labels for one contact? We send something to this contact several times a week and it would be nice to use the mailing label we have created to print a whole page of just this person.

Thank you.

Re: Print a whole page of labels for one contact

It depends. If you have just one contact that you want to do that for the easy way is to create a lablel and use text fields in the label template to provide the name and address information. then when you run the label do a lookup and have the number of contacts selected that would fill a full sheet and run the template for the current lookup. Because there aren't any actual data field in the template it will print the number of labels that you have selected in the lookup but what it will print is the text data in the template.

 

On the other hand if you might need to print a label sheet for any contact in your database, it can be done but it requires some very tricky VB script programming in the template to make it happen.

Re: Print a whole page of labels for one contact

Use Word to print full pages of the same label.     you can click on the layout of the contact and do a CTRL-C.

go to Word and CTRL-V.  Get rid of the contact info you don't need.  format the font etc.

Highlight the label text, click on Mailings/Labels.   Select Full page, select  your label type, click Print.  EASY!
