Creating Simple Database Lists In Mac Numbers

Not all Numbers spreadsheets need to have complex formulas and perform calculations. Some of the most useful spreadsheets simply help you keep track of members of a group or items you own. Create a simple database like this is easy and can come in handy, especially if you save it to iCloud Drive for mobile access as well.

    Very good presentation on data base. Could you show us how to generate mailing labels from a data base. It would be very useful. Thank you.

    John: That’s tough to do. You may want to search the Mac App Store for “labels” to see if anything there works. You can do it easily in the Contacts app, but that assumes you have all of those people in that app. Otherwise, you need to copy and paste from Numbers into Pages and then put a lot of work (and trial and error) into formatting them perfectly to fit your labels. I wouldn’t do that unless you really like working on that kind of thing.

    My MacBook Pro doesn’t have Pages. Where do I get it? Did Microsoft for Mac override it?

    Marilyn: You can get it in the Mac App Store. Microsoft Word is a different app from a different company. One app doesn’t overwrite another like that.

    I use Orion Print & Label . It’s not on the Mac App Store and costs about $15
