Q: Mailing Labels in MS word Help

I am running MS Word 2010. Here is my problem.

Letís say I type a letter and have the personís name and address in the letter. On the Word menu bar I select labels. For some reason when the label prints, it is center adjusted and not adjusted to the left like a normal mailing label would be.

Any thoughts on how to fix this.

Are you using some special labeling paper? I'm assuming it's a sticky label on one side. There should be instructions on how to do the File>>Page Setup... Then choose your appropriate type of paper. For the labels it should create a large table where you can input the many different addresses.

It integrates with Word and can use Excel lists, I've just always found it easier than the word labels.

I am trying to print some mailing labels using Word. To do that, I have to use the Mail Merge function. My data source is a list of addresses in a Word document in the following format:

123 Main
Anytown, MO 12345
Attn: So and So

I'm trying to print to Avery labels 8160 which has 30 labels to a sheet. Each label is supposed to be a different address.

I follow the instructions in Word's help file. When I get to the step where it asks me for the data source, I select to open my Word document as the data source. A box opens with three windows in it. The first is field delimiter, the second record delimiter, the third contains my list of addresses from my data source. I'm not sure what to put for the delimiters so I leave them as they are--field delimiter: none, record delimiter: enter. I tried other combinations like tab for the field delimiter but it doesn't seem to make a difference. I click on OK. I get another box to set up main document. I do that. Then the next step is a box titled Create Labels. Here I choose Insert Merge Field. A drop down appears. Only the first line of the first address appears. I select it & click OK. Then I set up the main document. The final step is to click Merge Labels With The Document.

Here's the problem: When I click Merge, I end up with two documents. The first document has the first line of the first address printed on all the labels. In other words just the name of the place I'm mailing to that appear... Read more

Using either MS Works 2007 or MS Word 2002, I am unable to merge this data base to produce mailing labels. The .wab file is located in Application Data\Microsoft\Address Book\"my name".wab. When I try to get Word to use this Address Book for the data base in mailmerge, it brings up a small screen with a bunch of gobble de gook. Trying various other interpreters changes the gooble de gook occassionaly but never produces text suitable for the address labels. I have been unable to find a way to convert the .wab file to a readable data base file.

Hi, I think I have a new one for you. I've seen this problem posted on other sites and no solutions ever addressed.

I'm mail merging a a mailing list onto sheets of ten labels, a different number of labels every day, anywhere from 30-200. I've used the wizard any number of times, always with the same result, never with an option or menu that provides a fix:
-- 1st sheet looks okay -- records 1-10 appear
-- 2nd sheet, records 2-11 appear
-- 3rd sheet, records 3-12 appear
-- etc, till there are as many sheets as there are records in the database. So for today's mailing list of 45 records, I had 45 sheets instead of 5.

The first label in my template has a header that says "Research Study" followed by the mail merge fields -- custom arranged, not using Address Block or anything preset. The propogated labels all say "<<Next Record>>" in front of "Research Study". I can provide an example if needed.

It also doesn't allow me to choose the order in which the emails propogate, i.e. I can go across but not down. I've done this many times in older versions of Word without these problems. I've used the Avery system, but I have to go thru the wizard each and every time when all I want to do is make a reusable template to copy and merge new records into each day.

Please help.

Hi everybody,
In Word 2000 there is an e-mail-button. How is that supposed to work? When I click it, I get the email address lines and so on at the tip of the screen. When I click the send button, Word (or some other program) immediately tries to send the mail, and complains, since there is no Internet connection open. If I click the send button once again (being stubborn), it starts to dial my default dial-up connection, but without the password, although Outlook Express and Internet Explorer always remember the password.
Can I get Word to put the mail in the outbox of Outlook Express instead of trying to send it immediately. Or, can I get it to remember the password, if it has to send it immediately.

When I looked in the Word help, it seemed more normal to combine word with outlook 200 than with Outlook Express. Does it make sense at all to try to use Word and Outlook Express together? Maybe it is better to simply write the e-mail message in word 2000 and then cut and paste it into Outlook Express?

"This error can occur if you try to send a Word document by using the Email ( Microsoft Office Button | Send command) command. If Word hangs, or you closed Word and a new message dialog does not appear, it is possible that Outlook did not receive the request to start a new message.
To avoid this issue, restart Word and attempt to send the attachment again, but wait for Outlook to respond prior to attempting another action.
You cannot close Microsoft Office Word until the Send Mail Command is finished. Switch to the New Message first, and either send or close the message".

I searched a little bit, I didn't see it:

How do you shut off a Word document before sending it so the receiver of the document cannot back-track and see any changes you made to the document before sending it ?

I hope that made sense, but I read something about a year ago that said if you e-mailed someone a Word Document, that they may be able to pull that document into their system, and simply use the 'back' key to show any changes you made to the document before you sent them the version you saved as the final one.

Am I making sense ?

There is a way to shut this off so they cannot do that, I just don't recall how.

Hi there

It's been quite a while since I asked for help. I can easily create mailing labels using Mail Merge. The data source resides in Excel. I automated the mail merge process by recording a macro in MS Word 2000. When I ran the macro it did exactly what I keyed in. I looked at the macro, which defaulted to Macro1, by going to Tools-Macro-Macros. The macro was there. I saved the Word file as Labels.doc in my C drive. I also saved the other file that had the fields in one sheet. You know the one that I mean.

Here is the problem. I e-mailed the 2 MS Word files and the Excel file to my co-worker. My coworker saved the 3 files into his C drive also. When he tried to run the macro, it did not work. As a matter of fact, when I went to Tools-Macro-Macros to see what went wrong, my Macro1 was not there at all. When I e-mail an Excel workbook with macros to anyone, the macros are attached to the workbook but this is not the case with macros recorded in MS word. How can I get around this??

I want to do a mass mailing using the Word application of Vista. I have created the Address Database - correctly, so far as I can tell - at least it works to put the salutation on the letters. In addressing the envelopes I place the cursor where I want the Address Block to appear but in the execution of the address only the 1st line (the name) of a 3-line address appears there. The street and number and the town appear near the left edge of the envelope and the ZIP code appears near the right edge.

One has been a word database and has been creating labels in Word under tools, envelopes. Can one use that same word document with addresses, if a person decides to do labels by the merging process? Impression given since the document, or listing of actual addresses is set up different in envelopes and labels, that one somehow has to convert that file into different arrangement when doing labels under merging process. Yes, I have performed the merging process with form letters and etc but I have never used a database in Word that was originally created for envelopes and labels to be used for existing list for merging. Any insight from experience would be appreciated. Thanks.

AFAIK, you will need the info in a columnar table, not "grouped" as in address fields.

A:Word Labels

Not exactly sure on what your trying to do, if you create your labels with Mail Merge you should be able to save the word document as is and re-use it. But not knowing your process I can't answer exactly.

You mentioned Database, if it is an Access Database then you can use the report/label wizard to create labels in Access and skip going through mail Merge.

I use a custom label for printing labels 2 x 4 in a particular way, which I used in Word 97 and when I upgraded to Word 2002 (still using W98) it still worked. I recently had a complete crash and W98 had to be reinstalled. When I reinstalled Word 2002 I redid the labels with exactly the same configuration (which I had recorded elsewhere), but the labels only print on the bottom half of the page, i.e. 2 x 2, and not in the correct positions. The bizarre thing is that I reloaded Word 97 and the labels work OK with exactly the same configuration. I now have both versions of Word installed, which is not satisfactory, using Word 97 for labels. Word 2002, with the same configuration, still only prints half a page. Can any one explain this oddity, and, better still, think of a cure?

Perhaps this is linked to the printer driver assigned. Verify that both versions of Word are using the same driver with the exact same settings

Hi, I have the need to print mailing labels on a fairly regular basis. Generally I need to print one label at a time as opposed to from a list/mail merge. My problem is that no matter the position of the label on the sheet that I want printed..it always prints in the 1st row, 1st column. I am therefore forced to move blank labels on the sheet to this position repeatedly.

I am using word 2000 on an xp machine. I am using an hp laser jet 6p and have set the label specifics to Avery standard 5160, which is 1" X 2 5/8" labels that are 3 across, 10 rows deep.

While the software allows you to select which label you want printed on....it seems to have no impact on where the label is actually printed.

Any help is appreciated.

A recent mystery.

For years, I have been printing mailing/address labels using the Avery 5160 and then 8160 format. It has worked flawlessly until recently when I tried to print labels again. Now, no matter what settings I check, I get a horizontal and vertical drift.

I have verified over and over the 8160 spec and settings, but to no avail. I have checked my printer properties, also.

I am running Windows XP (SP3) with Word 2002 and using an Epson RX620 for the printing.

I feel like I am missing something obvious, but am stumped. Again... something has changed as this has worked for years before.

I appreciate your thoughts and comments.

A:Address Labels and Word

Perhaps you have been luckier than I in the past. I nearly always have to tweak the settings a little for labels, but it's so easy that I don't mind at all. I just print a blank page with the labels on it and compare it with the sheet of labels. Holding them up to the light usually reveals where the problems lie, and then I adjust accordingly.

Someone else may have a more elegant solution, but that always works for me.

I can create one label successfully but if I try to make a whole page it doesn't copy all of the cells.

If I try to just replicate each label on a full page label template, the label size does not stay fixed. It expands the label size even though I think I am putting in the same info.

This is my first posting. I appreciate any help. Thanks in advance.
