Applicable release versions: AP, R83
Category Access: Verbs (152)
Description produces one or more columns of output.

After pressing <return> to submit the Access sentence for processing, a "?" prompt appears. This prompt is to supply the comma separated label output parameters:

columns,rows,skip,indent,size,space,c

columns the number of labels across the page.
rows the number of print lines on each label.
skip the number of lines (vertically) between labels.
indent the number of spaces to indent from left margin.
size the number of print positions per label.
space the number of spaces (horizontally) between labels.
c compresses null values.


If the "indent" parameter is not zero, this command prompts for entry of the "header" text for each print line requested. If any text is entered at any of these prompts, that text will appear before the corresponding print line on the left-most (1st) column only. Pressing <return> at any of these prompts indicates a null header.

The labels are printed in the same order as the items appear in the file. To change the ordering use the "sort-label" command.
Syntax list-label file.reference {itemlist} {sellist} {outlist} {modlist} {(options)}
Options
Example
:list-label entity contact company address csz (cip
?2,4,1,0,30,2,c

The label parameters shown define the output as having 2 labels across, 4 lines 
each (contact, company, address & csz), skip 1 line, indent 0 (zero - 
assumes labels are aligned at the first print position), 30 print positions 
each (longer strings are truncated to 30, in this case), space over 2 to the 
right between each label, and "c" for "compress" nulls 
(don't allow blank lines within the label).
