As a proud platinum sponsor, we just attended the all-virtual VSLive! VirtCon as an exhibitor. For me, it was actually a revisit, although my last VSLive! experience dates back some time ago. I've been to San Francisco in 2002 when .NET 1.0 was first launched by Bill Gates himself. At least the travel wasn't that exhausting this time :).

Enabling Individual Copies and Form Feeds for Labels

Enabling Individual Copies and Form Feeds for Labels

This has been another community suggestion from our Idea Place. Until version 26, you could only have one copy count for labels. This means that the same number of copies were printed for each and every label. In version 26 you can now adjust this individually, based on the data in your data source.

An often required feature for "this cannot be done" type of problems is looking into the future. Things like "don't print this group if it doesn't contain record xy" or "print a reference to the page number of an item that's printed way later". Before List & Label 26, there was no simple solution to this and the magic had to be done in the application if possible at all. Starting with List & Label 26, we'll introduce a new feature that's aimed at solving exactly challenges like this.

This has been another FAQ without a really good answer – how can I get a report with completely different parts like a cover sheet, a table of contents, some tabular reports, some charts and images, then a text block and so on?

Powerful, Reusable Sub-Reports for Your Reports

Powerful, Reusable Sub-Reports for Your Reports

ByJochen BartlauJuly 15, 20202 min read

Often reports consist of similar, repetitive sections like a number of charts or crosstabs just filtered for different categories but otherwise identical. Or tables and subtables that have a preselected set of columns you want to have wherever this table is used. List & Label 26 now helps you and your users to get rid of the tedious task to maintain such reports and apply changes to all instances of objects. You can add real subreports that contain exactly the required items and maintain those in one single place.
