I have to do this project for labels.
Our company manually does all our labels i need to automate this.
I have been using ASP and SQL
What i need to do is allow users to select which form i.e
Avery 5164 or Avery xxx from a list box...(i can set up a nice form no problem)...Then i am going to read the data in sql and get the information....
I then have to format this on to the PDF so that users can print out the labels in the correct position....and maybe be able to change it on the PDF so they can print it out.
Would stylus XML work for me.....
I can see from about i need to save 20 PDF layouts etc....
Any one point me in the right direction.
I have been reading about XML sytle sheets .......

You use XSLT to create special tags that the FO post-processor
then looks at, and uses to render the document to PDF.
On the project scenarios, there is an option on the Post-Process tab
of the Scenarios dialog called "Post process with Apache FOP" which
should do what you want.
If you need more information, when you are on that dialog, press F1.
When the on-line Help opens up, the link "Postprocessing Result
Documents" will take you to another page. From there, there is a link
"Generating Formatting Objects". And on that page, there is a list of
the various steps for building and generating FO output.
