Hello Bruce, I seem to be having a different problem altogether. I created my ticket in word using logos and text boxes as needed, ticket looks great. I followed your very clear instructions but when I did the Finish & Merge I got this message, "You cannot include DATA, NEXT, NEXTIF, or SKIPIF fields in comments, headers, footers, footnotes or endnotes." I then click on OK and get this, "A field calculation error occurred in record 1. Bruce any help would be much appreciated. Thank you!!
Now for the slightly hard bit. If you just try and complete your merge now, you'll get several pages of tickets. Each page will have four tickets on it. But all tickets on any page will have the same number. Each page will have a different number, but all the tickets on that page will have the same number. That's no good. You need each ticket to have a different number.
Tyvek® is comfortable to wear, can resist repetitive folding and flexing, and is inexpensive to purchase in large quantities. These wristbands are quickly secured on a patron's wrist, eliminating potential traffic jams as people line up to get into your event. A wristband will last well beyond the length of your event, even if it gets wet! All our Tyvek® Wristbands are also recyclable, as polyethylene is similar to plastic bottles. Visit the Dupont™ site for more information on recycling.
Once you've placed your order, it's proof time. Customer Support hands off your specifications to the design team. Our talented graphic professionals will generate and email you an electronic proof by the end of the next business day. Just look it over and, if it meets your needs, email us back to approve! One you've approved the proof and chosen a shipping option, we'll finalize the order by charging your credit card and start processing your tickets.
The sizes of our customers' monitors vary, but the sizes of our tickets have been standardized! The description on the template page will tell you the size of your completed, cut ticket. The image that you see while you are filling out the text fields for your tickets might not even be to scale. Your proof will be scaled to your computer screen, but the size may change if it's saved and opened with another program. In other words, what you see on the screen is merely an image. The actual dimensions of your tickets are those written in the description, and they don't change.
Make sure that your image is in an accepted file format (TIF, JPG, PNG, GIF, or BMP) and does not exceed the maximum file size (49 MB). If you are still having trouble please try to convert it to a different file format (from JPG to TIF or the other way around). Changing color modes may help, although the ideal color mode is RGB. If none of these steps resolve the issue, try using a different browser. (For instance, if you are using Internet Explorer try switching to Mozilla Firefox or vice versa).
There’s an old Steve Martin joke about how to make a million dollars which starts, “First, get a million dollars…” That’s the key to this trick, too: First, get a bunch of numbers. Here’s a file with 1,197 numbers in it. Now import or paste those numbers into a thread so that the numbers appear in the right place. If you need two matching numbers, just import it twice.
