LABELS21 is a mini filing system to allow creation, editting, and printing
of labels on a PC. The features implemented are as follows:
1) Create New Labels
2) Update (Edit) Previously Stored Labels
3) Print Labels
4) List Labels
5) Delete Labels
6) Envelope Printing
All Features are accessible from the main menu and are self explanatory. The
one thing that should be noted is that the LABELS21 system accesses it's data
through a numerical key system so that if you wish to update or delete a rec-
ord you must first find the file number of the record. You will be given a
list of file numbers if you choose the List Labels Function from the main menu.

The Data/Index Files will be created automatically if they do not already exist.
If you wish to use a different label file name simply enter the name at the
label file prompt at the beginning of LABELS21 (NOTE: The file name may have
a Drive Letter and a Root but IT MAY NOT HAVE AN EXTENSION - LABELS21 adds
it's own extensions). The data in the label files is indexed off the
COMPANY name and the STREET ADDRESS 1 Line. If both of these lines are id-
dentical in two records it may cause problems.
