MakeLabels

MakeLabels is a program that generates PDS4 labels using a label template and one or two Excel  spreadsheets. It replaces placeholders in the template with values from the spreadsheets.  In fact it can be used to output any type of ASCII file.

A graphical user interface (GUI) version of the program and a command-line version are provided. Most users will use the GUI version for rapid or infrequent processing. The command-line version is more useful when setting up automated processes.

This program may be useful to individual investigators who submit data to PDS.
