Date

Some reports can be filtered by creation or manufacture date. You can set range of date (Date From - Date To) you want to print.

Label copies (0 for data value)

Here you can set number of copies of printed labels. By default (if set to 0), program prints for each label as many copies as defined in quantity field (Qty) of printed dataset. If you set custom copies number (1-500), each label is printed that value times.
