    Mailing lables

    When trying to print lables i have an issue: in my records I have home and work addresses.For some people i have either address or both. When trying to set up mailing lables is it possible to direct it " if no home address then business"? Because right now I have about 50% of the lables will have no adresses since i don't have the home info.

    Yes it's possible.
    Use a query to identify records for the labels. Run the query, and ensure it gets the info you want/need, then move to labels.

    This is the sort of conditional statement you need in your query
    AddrToPrint: iif(isnull(homeaddress),workaddress,homeaddress) which means

    if the homeAddress isNull then use the workaddress,
    if not then use the homeaddress.

    You'll have to test with your field names.

    You could also try

    addrToUse: iif(len(trim(homeaddress)) = 0,workaddress,homeaddress) which means

    if the length of the homeaddress is 0, then use the workaddress, else use the homeaddress

    Good luck.
