Setting Report Options for a Crystal Report

I am trying to print small Barcodes on custom labels. The dimensions of the labels are as follows:

Label has 1/8” Gap between each label @ Top & Bottom.
.125” space On each side (Left & Right)
1/64” Corner Radius  (Square Corners)
.63" Across.

My problem is that I'm not sure how and where to set the correct Printer properties and what values are associated with the correct properties. I'm using CR 11.

Thanks,

You can create a LABEL report using the Mailing Labor WIzard.
That will allow you to choose the AVERY label number or set the label size manually

You can also set the printer up to use a custom paper size through the printer driver.

Is there an Avery Label for DataMatrix Barcodes? If not, I can set the report parameters such as the width/height, left, right, top, bottom margins, etc. However, I wish to print 1 label per page, my options that it's not allowing me to change is that it will print 8 labels per line and 11 lines per page. I just want to print 1 label per perforation.

Okay, You aren't printing labels just need one per page?

You can use NEW PAGE AFTER the section with the barcode

No...I AM printing labels, but they are on a roll that is fed thru a Zebra Printer. The labels themselves are 1/2" x 1/2".  Here is a picture. Like they say, a picture is worth a 1000 words.

DO they have an Avery equivalent?

Did you start building as a Mailing Label report?

Unfortunately, these are custom made labels so Avery does not have any equivalent. Also, I tried creating the report using the Mailing Label template as well as a Blank report. I can see it will probably be alot of trial and error.

Just tried in CR XI (v11).  You don't have much control over the page size.

CR 2008 allows you to diassociate the paper from the printer and then set the paper size.

With CR XI you could create a custom paper size in the printer driver.  Directions are specific to the version of Windows.
