Why is my data not changing?

It's frustrating when you think you almost got this design working, but then your data isn't changing.

Ugh! Fear not, there's likely an easy answer.

Did you forget your header row?

The long story short is: you forgot a header row.

Looking at Your Data File

Does your data file look like this?

123A
123B
123C
234A
234B
234C
235A
235B
235C

Your Data tab probably looks something like:

Oops, you forgot a header row!

Label LIVE automatically uses the first row 123A as the header, which can create very confusing variable names.

Adding a Header Row

SERIAL
123A
123B
123C
234A
234B
234C
235A
235B
235C

All we did was add SERIAL to the top. Now that entire column of data can be referenced within the label design.

Save the file and reload the data... You're back in business!

This looks much better and makes total sense. You imported a list of SERIAL numbers.
