Question about FileMaker Pro 7 for Mac, PC

1 Answer

Can only print one label when I set up Avery Labels

I'm working in FileMaker Pro 7 on Mac. My goal is to print labels of my database. I chose layout mode, then "new/layout report", then records from my correct database, then "labels", then I specify label contents. After this, I look in preview mode of FileMaker and all of my labels look great. However, in preview mode when I go to print, only the first label is displayed. Consequently, only the first label of my database is printed. I've created labels taking these exact steps with other FileMaker Pro contact databases of mine, but with this database I have had no success and I don't understand why. Does anyone know what is happening? -Jenny

Hi. Look at the label contents. I believe the top corners of the group is touching the header. Meaning it should only print 1 time.
Make the content smaller and be sure it is inside the body area.

Create labels on Word 7 with Avery 8250 labels


I am assuming that you want to do a mail merge from a list.

If you list is in Excel, you should be able to click mailings in Word. It will take you through the steps to create your set of labels. [It will help with other places for your lists besides Excel, too.

Deleted/missing client details


Sheldon, The data might really be gone. There are several reasons you might lose data with Filemaker 7 including the file being closed unexpectedly due to power failure, so the application doesn't close the file properly, or the Filemaker application unexpectedly quitting. However, the data might still be recoverable in this scenario. Under the File menu there is a recover command you can try that will create a new "Recovered" file from the current one. Additionally, I strongly recommend you start a daily incremental back up for your FileMaker database files. While corruption issue are rare, accidentally deleting a record, or information in a field, or purposeful sabotage by an unhappy employee is permanent without a backup. Additionally, a back up would provide a solution for recovering the data in the event client data disappears in the future.

I hope I've done a good job answering your question. I am a FileMaker 7 expert (and 8, 9, and 10 as well); if you have any additional questions I will do my best to answer them. If my answer was helpful for you I'd appreciate a 5 thumbs up rating, or a click on the yes this was helpful button. Thank you!

Layout/Printing issues


FileMaker 5.5 is a long time ago for me, but I think I will try to answer your question (although it is likely you have a solution or no longer need one.) While in layout mode, while working on the layout, go to printer setup and choose the printer and page size you will be printing to. This will cause FileMaker to have a dashed line where the printer pages are on the layout. Anything that extends over these lines will require additional pages to print. Simply bring everything back in before these lines to limit to 1 page (including the blank space at the bottom of the page. There is a tab you will need to drag above the page break line to prevent a second page from printing. Additionally, if you cannot work it out, while printing from FileMaker if you choose the page range of 1 to 1, only 1 page will print, however, doing this prevents you from printing additional records without writing a script to do it. However, if you are able to redesign the layout to only print 1 page then you will notice there is an option on the print dialog box that indicates something to the effect of "Print current record" and "Print records currently being browsed" (Don't remember the exact wording in FileMaker 5.5); Choosing the records currently being browsed option will print all records in your current found set.

I hope I've done a good job answering your question. I am a FileMaker expert for version after 7 and have used Filemaker since version 4; if you have any additional questions I will do my best to answer them. If my answer was helpful for you I'd appreciate a 5 thumbs up rating, or a click on the yes this was helpful button. Thank you!

I have Microsoft 2007...where can I make a database for labels?


Go to tools and goto the print labels and start a new label. It will ask you to creat one or merge from a data base and at that point you can create your own. Save it and then you will use Data merge to merge it back into the document.

I ask you to do it this way, since you will ultimately use it in this capacity.

Problems with avery mac label expert


To reset the size in your printer to the correct A4 size, do this:
Go to your Applications folder on your hard drive. 
In it, you will find a Utilities folder. 
Inside that folder, you will find a folder called "Printer Setup Utility."
Inside THAT folder, you will find a list of printers you have connected to your Mac. 
Click on one. You will see, at the top of your screen, a set of menus. Click on the "Printer Setup Utility" menu at the far left. 
Choose "Preferences" from the drop-down list. 
You will see a dialog box with three options: Printing, Sharing, and Faxing. If Printing is not automatically displayed, click on the Printing tab. 
At the bottom of the Printing dialog box, you will see another pull-down menu: "Default paper size in page setup"
Choose A4, or whatever size you wish. 
Close up all the boxes, and print your labels to your heart's content. 
When you're done with your labels, don't forget to repeat this process to switch your printer back to your ordinary size paper. 
Hope this helps.

This is where I get stuck in trying to make Labels in Microsoft Works


Create a mail merge label with the Address Book
On the File menu, click New.
In the Works Task Launcher, click Templates.
In the Letters and Labels category, click Mailing labels.
Click Use this style.
In the Labels dialog box, click Mailing labels.
Click OK.
The Label Settings dialog box appears.
Under Printer Information, click the option for the printer you are using.
Under Label Information, select the label product and style.

If you're seeing 30 of the same label, try adding <<Next Record>> to the beginning of each label (including the < > characters as shown). If you need more help please simply reply to this by posting comments, and I'll be notifited right much faster than happening across a request for help by chance; the system will send me an e-mail to make me aware of your comments.

Hope this will FixYa!!!

Thanks,

Aimiel
