    Thank you for the project Roy, much appreciated.

    I am sure people will benefit from these files.

    I have made just a small correction to it, related to the textbox. I have attached the new project and just added 1500 Telerik points to your account for sharing your files with us!.

    Thank you for your cooperation.

    Sincerely yours,

    When you say to populate the the MailingLabelSchema.xsd dataset with your data and bind the report to the dataset. Then export the report to PDF and it will print on Avery 5160/8160 labels.

    Would you be able to show me an example of how to populate the MailingLabelSchema and export the report to PDF?

    Hi Fulvio,

    You can review the following MSDN article on populating a dataset. As for exporting the report to pdf, you can either use the ReportViewer control to show the report and export it, or export it programmatically as explained in this KB article.

    Best wishes,

    I downloaded the example and changed only the datasource and Textbox value . I opened the report in Preview mode, saved as PDF and printed. My alignment is off. I see this post is a couple of years old, are there better templates for Avery labels aout there?

    Hello Alan,

    The Avery format (as all the other label report templates) is actually a Multicolumn report. Take into consideration that as stated in the provided help article, multi-column reports are not supported in our HTML rendering (which is used in the Web report viewer), as the HTML rendering is considered to be a logical  (not physical page) view.

    Regards,

    I am using the PDF Export method, not HTML rendering. It is my understanding that exporting to PDF will allow labels to be created using Telerik reporting. I talked with atn Avery rep and he gave me the sizes for the 5520 (5160) labels as follows:

    Page                   8 1/2 x 11 in
    Top Margin         0.5 in
    Side Margins      0.19 in
    Vertical Ptich      1 in (didstance between top of one label and top of next label)
    Horizontal pitch  2.75 in (distance between left side of label in column to left side of label in next column)
    Label height       1 in
    Label Width        2.63 in

    With those settings, Should I not be able to export to PDF and have the labels align?

    Finally got it to work. When selecting the printer from the PDF document, my "Page Scaling" option was defaulted to "Fit To Printable Area". Once I set it to None, my labels printed out just fine.

    Any chance the example project could be updated to the most recent version of reporting.  I'm getting some errors after conversion and can't open the designer.  something about the detail section not being declared.  I'm using Visual Studio 2010.


    Actually it opens in the converted project but when I try and add the report (add new item)  to another project it gives errors.  is there a recommended way of transferring a report from one project to another?
