Label split tables overview

Label split tables are used to define groups of issue labels that must be broken out and printed separately from the main body of issue labels.

Possible uses for a label split table include:

Each row of the table contains values and codes that are compared to each subscription that is served an issue by the issue label update. If a match is made, then the label is split off into the group specified by the split code in the first column. If a subscription matches more than one filter row, then the first matching row is used; the priority of the table is from top to bottom. If a subscription matches none of the filter rows, then by default it is placed in the main group of labels.

Example: You want to place a special wrapper on the final issue of your expiring subscribers. The table should look like this:

Example:   You send two grace issues to expired subscribers. You want to place a special wrapper on those issues. The table should look like this:

Example:   You want to put a special wrapper on the last two issues of expiring subscriptions. The wrapper for new subscribers should be different from the wrapper for subscribers that have renewed at least once. You define two wrapper groups named "NWEXP" and "RNEXP".
