Interesting print merge scenario

Written by Jeff Harrison

In this case, a gal needed to merge onto a label template. Normally, labels tile as expected, or you can use the imposition tools in the print engine. What if the decals are precut and laid out as shown the animation?
Create as many fields in your database as labels per page. Then each label has it’s own field. (11 fields per page, and per database, if each label has only one field.) If each label has more than one field, such as Price & product ID, then you need to be organized in the Database and create numerous fields per label.
