PRINTING LABELS

PRINTING LABELS

PRINTING LABELS

(OP)
I'm trying to print shipping labels from a SQL database. I pull all the info in correctly and everything is fine. Here's my problem, each label goes on a box based on the item number. So if a customer ordered 25 boxes of item #106 I would need 25 labels to print. In my table I have a field that has the box count for each item number. How do I tell Crystal Reports to print the number of labels based on this field? So if I tell Crystal That I want to print #106, how will it print 25 labels based on the field?

Thanks

RE: PRINTING LABELS

Unfortunately Crystal doesn't handle this well.

There are cheats for low volume duplication, but that's not the case for you.

One common solution is to create a table with the rows duplicated the amount of times required for the box count.
