Banner Population Selection -- GWR3PAL (Mailing Labels)


GWR3PAL creates mailing labels from a Population Selection that has been previously created. It is run after the user has gone through the steps to create a population in GLBDATA. For more information about earlier steps, refer to the Population Selection Overview.

GWR3PAL is used to print mailing labels directly from Banner Report Viewer. (Previously, labels were printed on a special line printer at Sylvania Campus and delivered to you through Intercampus Mail.)

Labels can be printed directly from Banner Report Viewer. When this report appears in Report Viewer, you will see a "Labels" link just to the right of the blue dots.

  2. Click on the "Labels" link on the right side of the report line.
    GWR3PAL is designed to work with Avery Standard Labels, size #5160.
  3. Print the report.

For help with this process, contact the TSS Training Team.

Another Option: Printing Your Labels Using a Network Printer (not recommended)

Another option is to send your labels report to one of PCC's network printers. If there is one in your area that has been set up to perform this process, it will appear on the drop-down menu in the "Printer Control" block of GWR3PAL..

  1. In the "Printer Control" block of GWR3PAL, click on the down-arrow next to the "Printer" field and select the printer code for a network printer in your area.
    • Printer codes can be understood as follows: "SYCC218PR01" would indicate a Sylvania printer in the CC Building, room 218.
    • Not all PCC printers will be listed. To see if your network printer can be added to the list, call the Help Desk at x4400.

  2. In the "Special Print" field, type "label3."

  3. Press Next Section  and follow steps 3 -- 5 in the top section of this page.
