I am having trouble with the reading of import files into L&A. I am exporting a text file from our database ('"shipping")when I want to print a shipping label. I have created a label for this which reads from this text file ("shipping"). This worked great. I then wanted to print a different part shipping label. The database automatically exports the new file("shipping) which overwrites the previous file. When I try to print the label, L&A still prints the original file which has been deleted. How can I get L&A to re-read the file without having to re-create the label.

Hi skdave,

L&A cashes the imported information. Every time your contact database (or exported text file) is modified, you should re-import it. The only exception is Apple Address Book. L&A imports Address Book contacts every time you start it.
