I forgot to mention that the label sizes I have 69mm x 20mm.

I have Its not too easy as you have to design your label at one of the preset page sizes and let the brother machine scale it automatically. We print out labels 62mm by 100mm.

Yeah MYOB help site says about the same; :) ( using epson printer as a reference; ) :D

5. Hmmm. This probably explains why I haven't been able to find any way to set a custom label size. So, how do the brother scale the printout? Could you perhaps come back to me with some more details as to how you do this? Tomorrow would be fine. I have to catch some Z's now anyway as I have an early start in the morning. Thanks for whatever help you can provide.

Thanks 1click. I've printed that out. I'll go over it when I get some spare time tomorrow. Enjoy you night.

6. I had a good look at the 1click, but it's for retail manager, not accounting. I don't have those options and I need to be able to choose the appropriate printer depending upon the task. I'll give MYOB a call and see if they can help. If anyone has any more to offer, please feel free.

This is how i did itI created a mailing label A4 Letter size. I arranged all the elements i wanted to fill the A4 page. Then when i printed a mailing label through the brother printer it automatically adjusted it to fit on the 62mm x 100mm paper size i selected in the printer preferences. Although i did waste a few labels getting the layout and font sizes right.

OkAfter a little MYOB help hunting; See if this helps; :D

I rang MYOB and they advised that it couldn't be done. I'll try macnamara's advice and experiment. The one thing I can do is export the addresses from the card info file for the sales invoices I want printed with labels as a csv or tab delimited. I can then imprt this file into the Brother P touch editor software. A long workaround for such a small task.
