The information in this article applies to:
- Microsoft Works for the Macintosh, version 3.0

To print continuous labels to an ImageWriter from a Works Database file, do the following:

  1. Open the database.

  2. From the Form menu, choose New Form and enter a form name.

  3. Click Custom Size.

    To determine the Height:

    Measure from the top of one label to the top of the next label. Type the height in the Height box.

    To determine the Width:

    1. Single column labels: Type the measurement of the width of the label in the Width box.

    2. Multiple column labels: Measure from the left edge of first label to the left edge of the next. Type the width in the Width box.

  4. Click the Fields button. Select the field(s) you want to place on the form and click the Place button. To select more than one field, hold down the SHIFT key and select the desired fields. Click OK to exit the Auto Place Fields dialog box. Click OK to exit the New/Set Up Form dialog box.

  5. Once the fields have been properly placed and formatted, choose Data View from the Form menu.

  6. From the File Menu, choose Page Setup. Select the appropriate paper size:

    • US Letter (8.5" x 11") for multiple column labels
    • Int’l Fanfold: (8.5" x 12") for single column labels

    Select No Gaps Between Pages. Make sure Tall Adjusted is not selected.

    Orientation should be Portrait.

  7. Click the Document button:

    1. For single column labels, set the margins as follows:

      Top/Bottom: 0.00 inches

      Left: 0.25 inches (This may be adjusted to match the label position on the printer platen.)

      Right: The difference between the label width plus the left margin and the selected page width.

               For example, if your label width is 4.0 inches,
               your left margin is 0.25 inches and your page
               width is 8.5 inches, the right margin should be:
      
               8.5 - (4.0 + 0.25) = 4.25 inches
    2. For multiple column labels, set the margins as follows:

      Top: Measure from the top of the page to the top of the first row of labels.

      Bottom: Measure from the bottom of the page to the bottom of the last row of labels.

      Left: 0.25 inches (This may be adjusted to match the label position on the printer platen.)

      Right: Measure from the right edge of the last column of labels to the right edge of the paper.

      Click OK to exit the Document dialog box, then click OK again to exit the Page Setup dialog Box.

  8. From the File menu, choose Print.

  9. In the Print dialog box, choose the options you want.

  10. From the File menu, choose Print.

MORE INFORMATION

The Horizontal and Vertical boxes under Space Between Forms (accessed by choosing the Document button from the Page Setup dialog box) are unavailable (dimmed) if the database is in design view. You need to be in data view to enter these values. You may need to enter horizontal and vertical spacing measurements if, in step 3, you entered the height and width measurement of the label rather than following the steps as outlined.
