Need to Print Lablels with Incrementing Label Number

Need to Print Lablels with Incrementing Label Number

(OP)
Hi,

We need to print labels for customer that has a label number on it. I see how to use the on-print event of the detail section of the report (label) to get a number on the label that increments using the following code:

Private Sub Detail_Print(Cancel As Integer, PrintCount As Integer)
gbl_line_counter = gbl_line_counter + 1
Me.Line_Number = gbl_line_counter
End Sub

However, we need to store the last number used and then start at the next number when we print the labels again.

What's the best way to do this?

Thanks !!

Hi,

Why not store in a table.  Maybe that's the only thing in the table.  Maybe you have other global elements in that table.

However, If all you're attempting to do is have a unique number on the lable, use the date and time, along with a sequence number, to generate unique numbers for each print job.
