Is there a way to be able to make a printer template for a Dymo printer or use a Dymo label file format in access? If so can you point me in the way. On my label I just have a string of text (SkuNm) and then a barcode that is from another string of text (ProdConSku). Thanks.

Just create your own form-template on Print Server forms that matches the dimension of your label and then on the report on the page setup set it to use the specific printer with the specific form-template.

You would have to go through the Dymo SDK to use those types of templates:

Here's an example from Dymo that shows how to use it from Access:

Scot Mcdaniel. Did you have a link in your comment above and then edit it to a different link? I ask because I checked your comment on my phone and when I got into my office when I pulled up the link it looked different. Also that is some info. If you did change a link  could you post back that one. It may help me figure this out. If you didn't im crazy and whats new. Thanks.

The Dymo SDK in VBA for Access is very difficult for me but this is the more solid foundation once figured out.
