Formatting labels

Hello.  My question relates printing 3x10 labels for a lookup I have created in Act 2010.

 

Specifically, is it possible to create a label template that permits me to input fields similar to those when creating a letter/report, etc?  When I open a label template, it only offers me the opportunity to enter fields which have a fixed length.  That is not sufficiently flexible on a label (and it often produces an odd finished product.

 

Thanks for your ideas.

Re: Formatting labels

I assume that what you are referring to is things like a City, State ZIP line. That is easily done using a custom filed and a Visula Basic script to concatenate the separate fields. there are articales on thing in the ACT! knowledge Base. There is also information in the ACT! help.
