To store and edit label templates for commonly packaged drugs:

Click the tools icon on the toolbar.


Click the databar buttons to browse through the database, add and delete entries, and to lookup a specific label.


The quick entry format is the same as that used for label entry:


Generic name

Do not enter more characters than you can see in the text box.
If you need to enter a long description, do not use all capital letters, they take up more space than lower case letters.
Use abbreviations for less important parts of generic name (ie, HCl instead of hydrochloride).


Trade name        

The trade name is not required.
For generic drugs, you may enter "Trade name equiv" for clarification


Supplemental labeling

The supplemental labeling is not required.
Use this field to clarify the package contents, i.e., "5mg = ½  tab".


NDC number

NDC entry is enabled when you check "Print NDC barcodes" on the Setup window.
Enter numbers only in the NDC field.
Do not enter spaces or dashes.
The NDC number may contain 10, 11 or 12 digits.
The NDC number will be converted to a barcode on your label.
