I did not notice how limited the label feature in Quickbooks Premier
2005 is before I recommended its purchase. That goes for a few
features, but this more than the rest.

I have these standard and custom columns (in a sales order FORM):

ITEM
DESCRIPTION
LBS. IN
RATE
LBS. OUT
AMOUNT

I need to print labels with all of this information (plus customer
details like NAME and ADDRESS).

It looks like Quickbooks is useless for line item labels like these, so
I'm hoping for potential solutions.

If I can't find some way to do this, the project is canned. Please
help. Thanks.

QB gives you the option to print mailing labels. Mailing labels may be
printed for any of the names (customer, vendor, employee, sales rep, other
names).

It sounds like you are trying to print out specifics for your sales orders
onto your mailing labels. QB does not do this. This is not an example of
"how limited the label feature in Quickbooks". What you require is *NOT* a
mailing label, but a shipping label which includes a list of the items to be
shipped, quantities and costs.
You will have to export the sales order data and manipulate it outside of
QB. There *may* be 3rd party add-ons available. See

Yes, a shipping label. Anyone else know of such a product?

You put the contents of the box ON the label?

Do you have room for a text field saying: "STEAL ME?"

We have a rubber stamp that says "Dried Fish" to use when we ship expensive
electronic components.

Is anybody else wondering about the OP's possible kinship with a Curious
George?

Hi,
Our product called OZEXE professional (www.ozdevelopment.com) that
gives you access to the SDK without you having to know how to implement
the SDK. It is a free download. To get the QuickBooks Interface send
an e-mail to requesting it.

If you can get away with ODBC access to QuickBooks the OZEXE Lite
version will work as well.

There is built in support for printing to Windows Printers as well as
serial/parallel ports. Any questions just ask.

Regards,
James

exporting to excel then to word to do your mailing labels if you are
that desperate that the project is a goner. but this would be time
consuming unless it is just a few projects.
