Dear Kadi,
I just did this last week for an inventory label program. You will need to ask starting label position before giving them a choice of labels to print. Store this to mstartpos. Then copy the structure of file that holds your records to a temp file.

DO WHILE MSTARTPOS>1
APPEND BLANK
STORE MSTARTPOS-1 TO MSTARTPOS
ENDDO

This will put in blank records , then put in the records that you want to print, then
print your labels, do not filter out for blank records.
After you are done, close the temp file and erase it.
I hope this helps,
Marcia
