I have one report as Packing Lists. I want to show one formula url button on each row based on certain condition. If condition satisfies button will be visible. When user clicks that button some columns should be printed from DYMO Label writer/printer.

Can you clarify?

Are you simply saying that if some conditions are true then you want to have a button appear which will simply print that singe record on a specific form?

The format would be

IF( .. some condition is true,

URLRoot() & "db/" & dbid() & "?a=printr&dfid=xx&rid=" & [Record ID#]

Replace xx with the form ID number of the different form that you want to use.

Will it work for DYMO label writer? I know that I can use exact form and print with normal printer.

Just for are we on the same page : Attached file is the DYMO writer.

You could use Google Cloud Print with Zapier for this. I have this exact solution working in numerous implementations printing hundreds of labels regularly on Dymo and Zebra printers. This was the topic of my session at Empower this year. Here was the case study that lead up to it: https://www.quickbase.com/customers/dishout-drives-competitive-advantage-with-quickbase-webhooks
