Posatal Address and Physical Address

I have Act 6 which we are using for the last time before moving over to Act 10.

 

Currently the layout has a Postal Address group which uses the fields Address 1, Address 2 etc

Then there is a Business Address group which uses Business Address 1, Business Address 2 etc.

 

It has been set up this way because many of our clients have a different Suburb for the PO Box versus their street address.

 

How can the labels be setup to use the Postal Address when available.

When Postal is left blank use the Business Address.

 

Regards

Alan

Re: Posatal Address and Physical Address

In ACT! labels are reports in disguise. You could use scripting in the lable (report) to achieve it by an If /Then statement.

Re: Posatal Address and Physical Address

The solution suggested by Graeme Leo in his reply is basically correct. However it's not as simple as he suggested. I've written a package of label, postcard, and envelope templates that do something similar where a test field is used to specify the preferred mailing address and I do that by using scripting. However, it's not a single script test but a fairly significant amount of script programming to accomplish getting the correct address to print.

Re: Posatal Address and Physical Address

Roy,

 

Are you talking about your ACT Labels and Envelopes for $80 ?

 

If so, does it have the label I require already designed (just add my field names) ?

 

or do I have to use the software to write the script ?

 

Regards

Alan

Yes and no. The scripting I described before does apply to my label package but it is set to chose between the main (business) address and the home address.  What you want would require a custom label or label and envelope set. Because the address fields for the P.O. box address would be an addition to the database so those label(s) would be database specific. If you want to discuss it further, send me a private message or give me a call.
