We have entered the books and printed some of the labels last month and I need to print the rest of my books barcode labels and I can not find the instructions on how to print by date, all I see is entered today.

I am having issues with the printing of the labels. We got our first batch printed last month and all is well but now I'm trying to print the rest of the labels but when I go into preview print its showing the ones I already printed.
