    Print an 'unbound' label (Access 2003/SP 1)

    I am trying to print a "Fragile! Please Handle With Care!" label out of Access to a Zebra Thermal Printer. I can do it out of MS Word, but Zebra seems to have some inconsistencies with Word and sometimes doesn't clear the cache out. Next time you print, it prints the previous document. I have the label set up the way I want it, but when I switch to Preview Mode, I just get "Name?". On the record source, I left it blank. Can't I print a label with no record source?

    You should be able to create a report with no record source. Use a label control with its Caption set to Fragile! Please Handle With Care!, or use a text box whose control source is a formula

    ="Fragile! Please Handle With Care!"

    That did it! I actually have it in 3 text boxes.
    ="Fragile!"
    ="Please Handle"
    ="With Care!"

    Thanks for your help!
