Mailing Labels


Level 1

I need to create mailing/address labels.  There will be multiple addressees and most likely mutiple pages using Avery 5160.  We are using coldfusion as the front end and oracle as the backend.  My thought is to use an avery 5160 template which I found on the web, insert text fields for the database fields and somehow merge.  But I'm not sure if this is the right way to approach it OR if this is the way to approach it...how?  Do I set up each label with the text fields for the name, address etc. this would be 3 labels across and 10 down for a total of 30? We have Livecycle Designer ES 8.2 and Acrobat Prof 9 to use.

I am not sure if LC Designer is a good fit for this purpose. It is probably possible to set up a single repeating subfrom (whose size matches the pitch of the labels). Then flow it in a Western flowed subform AND vertical vertical subform. However getting it to work/match the paper size may be a pain.

I would have thought there were pre-baked solutions out there already.
