Chapter 15. Creating Specialized Reports > Creating Mailing Labels

Creating Mailing Labels

When you examine the output of the report shown in Figure 15.10, take out the text in the Report Header and Employee Header sections, and you might be struck by the report's uncanny resemblance to a sheet of mailing labels. You'd be well within your rights to think just that, because a multiple-column layout is exactly how you build a mailing label report in Access. After all, what is a sheet of mailing labels but a collection of stick-ons, each with a specific width and height, repeated in a row-and-column format? What is a multiple-column report? Why, it's the same thing: a collection of records, each with a specific width and height, repeated in a row-and-column format.

So if you want to print mailing labels from a table of address data, you need only use that data as the source of a multiple-column report, where each column is configured to precisely match the width and height of your labels. Of course, you also need to take into account the row and column spacing to match the layout on the mailing label sheet, so some tweaking is required.
