We use Rainbow commonly in Japan. Now we try to change this for Nice Label to do thermal variable printing.
However we encounter the difference of how to connect database between these software and are aware we need
totally change the way to think. We created simple csv database printing but Designer Pro requires everytime change
csv to connect from beginning process. Then we try to use solution file in Power Form to create button to easily do
so, but never work. Here is VB script for action below.

import clr
clr.AddReference('System.IO')
from System.IO import File,FileInfo
Dest = SolutionFilePath.Value + '\\OriginData.xls'
File.Copy(NewExelFileName.Value,Dest,True)

Where is System.IO coming from? We cannot find any explanations in manual of Nice Label.

We usually bring csv into layout fields in Rainbow, but Nice label is opposite where layout should go into csv database.
This fundamental contrary processing makes us confused, but hopefully we could get accustomed with it soon,

Chomp,

If you are trying to connect NiceLabel to a file, we recommend looking at these videos in order to understand how NL works
