Print Special Filters

If the predefined Subscriber Filters will not produce the list you need, you may create a Special Selection for these Labels.

To do so, Click the Print Special button on the Labels dialog.

 

HelpFilesLabelsSpecialSelectionCriteria

Labels Report - Select Filter Criteria dialog

 

Design a Filter as required - This is a complex Form with many options.

Use this option with care,.

Validate the results carefully.  

Creating a list will never harm the underlying database.

However, because of a badly designed filter, you make decisions based on results that are incorrect.

Fields - Click the Field name you would like to use for this special filter.  

Once the Filter's Field is selected, that field name appears on the right just above the Field Value selection.  

In this example (see mouse pointer in illustration above) the field name selected is SortCode and so that field name is displayed to the right.

All - The All tab will list all of the fields in the Subscribers table.

Field Order - Allows you to select the order in which the Subscribers table fields will be listed for selection.

oAlphabetic - Listed alphabetically by name.

oLogical - The default, listed in the logical order of the fields most commonly used for filters.

Searched - The Searched tab will list all of the Special Filters you've defined in this session.  

oWhen the Form is closed, this tab is cleared.

By Value - The default method for the filter is to match a selected Field's actual Value.

(In the example below, the word FIRE was entered as the desired Field Value in the SortCode field.)
