Hi jriver12,

Here's an example on your data, just loop around the string while it's greater than 49 characters and pull apart the bits. If you need any of this explained let me know.

<cfset test="acme manufacturing corporation of north and south america the quick brown fox jumps over the lazy dog">

<cfloop condition="len(test) gt 49">
     <cfset current = left(test, 49)>
     <cfset pos = len(current) - find(" ", reverse(current))>
     <cfset current = left(test, pos)>
     <cfset test = mid(test, pos+1, 999)>
     <cfoutput>#current#<br></cfoutput>
</cfloop>

<cfset current = test>
<cfoutput>#current#<br></cfoutput>

Outputs

acme manufacturing corporation of north and
south america the quick brown fox jumps over
the lazy dog

And here it is with your Zebra codes.

<cfset test="acme manufacturing corporation of north and south america the quick brown fox jumps over the lazy dog">
<cfset pl = 250>

<cfloop condition="len(test) gt 49">
     <cfset current = left(test, 49)>
     <cfset pos = len(current) - find(" ", reverse(current))>
     <cfset current = left(test, pos)>
     <cfset test = mid(test, pos+1, 999)>
     <cfoutput>
          ^FB750,1,0,C
          ^FO0,#pl#^A0,56,56^FD<cfoutput>#current#</cfoutput>^FS
     </cfoutput>
     <cfset pl = pl + 70>
</cfloop>

<cfset current = test>
<cfoutput>
     ^FB750,1,0,C
     ^FO0,#pl#^A0,56,56^FD<cfoutput>#current#</cfoutput>^FS<br>
</cfoutput>

Looks good.

I have found a problem that I have been unable to track,

although your variable "acme manufacturing corporation of north and south america the quick brown fox jumps over the lazy dog"

Breaks just great, however when a string as:

wimberly,lawson, steckel, Nelson & Schneider p.c.
comes into play.
it looks like it is jumping out of the loop after "wimberly,lawson, steckel," and does not break to the next line.

like I said it works fine however I cant see why it would jump out after on this particular string?

any suggestions?
