I have a problem with labels directly in numbers.
I've created a table that has 3 fields:
one is a reference number (IZU3) , and two are numbers representing cartons (1/22, 2/22, 3/22 etc.).
I want to make a custom label set where i could have: address (copied from a different table) + 3 fields from the table mentioned before. Anyone has a tip? thank's in advance

    Marcin,

    I think we need more information on what data goes where. A good way to do that is to mock-up a set of label and tables and post a screen shot here with a description of the process.

    The normal scheme would be to use the merge feature which allow us to insert datas from a Numbers table in a Pages document.

    If you go to my iDisk :
    <http://public.me.com/koenigyvan>
    you will be able to download :

    For_iWork:iWork '09:forNumbers09:forlabels.sparseimage.zip

    which gives the ability to print several different labels on a single sheet.

    Of course, an other soluce would be to build a table whose cells will match the labels size but there is a problem linked to the fact that there is no way to get completely rid of the pages's header and footer in Numbers documents.

    So you will always have 20 pixels unused at top and bottom of pages.
    Given that, building a table is not really easy. We must have two different rows heights :
    - one for the standard rows equal to your labels height
    - one for the top row and the bottom row of every page whose height will be label height minus twenty pixels.

    Merci

    Je désespérais de lire qu'un utilisateur avait pu se servir de ce script.
