This report prepares mailing labels specifically designed for Avery 5160 labels. The address used for these labels is the address found on the Family Summary tab.
This report opens in your default PDF Reader (Adobe, Foxit, Google) for printing purposes. Ensure that your printer is properly loaded with Avery 5160 labels. If your labels are not aligning you may need to adjust the page handling options. The options vary between PDF readers. You may need to set "Page Scaling = None", use "Custom Scale = 100%", or turn off "Fit to Page".
Another option is to export addresses to Excel so that a Mail Merge can be performed in Microsoft Word. This offers the user the option of manipulating data, customizing fonts, etc. prior to printing.
