Labels in Quickbooks

    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.

    Self promotion maybe, shameless no, What's wrong with talking about a
    solution that involves our product? It's not as if I am lying about
    the capabilities of OZEXE as others have used it for the same type of
    thing usually in conjunction with UPS Worldship.
