    Labels printing, quantity per page.



      Labels printing, quantity per page.


      Im using FMP 11 on MAC OSX, Im a old user of FileMaker but a starter experienced developer.

      Im working on a data base for my printing company that will have records with names, the amount of boxes per records and lot more stuff, what I want to create either using a script or maybe just by tricking FM is to make the labels taking in account the amount of boxes that i put in every record. For example, if i create a record that will have 4 boxes for shipping, when i print the labels, i will like FM to look into my box-count field and use that 4 to repeat 4 times that specific  label in my print out. The reason why i need it this way is because i print lots of orders at once and i cant do it one by one by just making 4 copies of the shipping label manually.


      Please let me know whats the best way to get this done. 


      Thank you in advance for your help.

            The basic idea is that you need a record for each label. If you have 2 records with 4 boxes each, you need 8 records in order to produce 8 labels. These records are created ad hoc in another table and printed from there.
