I'm trying to build a report that will print one label per qty shipped for each item on an order.

I've looked at the thread http://www.experts-exchange.com/Database/Reporting_/Crystal_Reports/Q_24649996.html?sfQueryTermInfo=1+10+30+crystal+label+multipl+report+time but since I'm stuck using CR 8.5, I wasn't able to follow the steps.

Quantities shipped could be up to 10 or so, but rarely greater than 5.

Is this possible to do with CR 8.5?

Thanks

Did you look at the assisted solution. If you can add a table to the database it can be used.

I cannot add a table to the database unfortunately.

I tried to create a separate Access database with this repeater table - but was not able to follow the instructions on linking the repeater table with the actual data.  Is that possible in CR 8.5?

If you know the quantity will never be above 10, you could create multiple detail sections and suppress based on the quantity.

Ok, thanks.

I'll give that a try.  10 should be more than enough.

This works really well.  And not much extra effort required.  Simply setup the label once, then copy and paste onto each additional detail section.

Thanks!
