Create address label reports

Learn to create address label reports in Amlib.

Most address label reports require the loading of a customised spine label. The following guide takes you through the entire process for loading the customised template, creating a new report and running the report.

Save the Template

  • Save the template into the Amlib/Reports folder on the Amlib server. This will make the template available for use for all users. Alternatively, you may save it into a local folder on your PC – but please be aware, that the template (once loaded) will only be available for use on that PC.
  • Ensure that the template is saved with a name that clearly identifies it as a customised address label – for example: MPADLABL.QRP

Load the Template

  1. Launch the Amlib client.
  2. Go to Main > Reports > RepBorrower - the Borrower Reports screen will open.
  3. From the main menu, select Application > RepAddNew.
  4. The Report Files window will open – ensure that the Report Entity = Borrower
  5. Click the F1 New button – the Report File window will open:
  6. Type in a Description – for example: Borrower Address Label
  7. Click on the Browse button and navigate to the Amlib/Reports folder on your Amlib Server and locate the template to be loaded (if the template has been loaded onto your PC – then navigate to the local folder)
  8. Select the file and then click on the Open button.
  9. Choose Type = Name and Addresses x 3 across
  10. You can leave Default Stats Code blank.
  11. Update Entity (Y/N) = N
  12. Click the F3 Update button to save the new template.
  13. Close out of the Report Files window.

The template is now loaded and available for use in a Report.

Create the Report

  1. Launch the Amlib client.
  2. Go to Main > Reports > RepBorrower - the Borrower Reports screen will open.
  3. Click the F1 New button.
  4. Locate the template you just loaded via RepAddNew, highlight it and click on the Select button.
  5. You will be returned to the Borrower Reports screen – locate the report you just created and highlight it (the entry will be in bolded red and the Report Type = the Report Description of the template you loaded)
  6. Type in a Report Description – for example: Mornington Address Labels
  7. Click the F3 Save button.

Once saved the line will be bolded red as the report does not have a F7 Where search. At this stage add in your Where search as normal.

Run the Address Label Report

  1. Go to Main > Reports > RepBorrower – the Borrower Reports screen will open.
  2. Locate the report you created as part of the Create a Report procedure above and highlight it.
  3. Click the F8 View button.
  4. Click No to the pop-up:
  5. A Report - View screen will now appear which you can print from:
