But it also puts a Next record field (a { NEXT } field) at the very
beginning of every label except the first, and that's probably what is
missing in your case.

Propagate fields can cause problems on some systems (Tablet PCs and
Vista PCs with tablet functionality, and possibly Windows 7 PCs with
tablet functionality), in which case you can use the macros at
