Word 2003 Mailing Labels

Q: Word 2003 Mailing Labels

I have attempted to create mailing labels using Word 2003. I used a prior Word version several years ago and was able to save the labels as a file--ready to print, not requiring database. Any ideas how to do this with Word 2003?

Thank you for your help,

Were you doing a mail merge? You can save the lables as a template as long as your data source for the mail merge is consistent.

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.

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.

I am using the mail merge wizard in Word 2003 to create address mailing labels from a mailing list I saved in an Excel 2003 worksheet.

Everything is fine, I've tested is several times. But there's one very aggravating little problem.

The labels are all created with a space in front of the first line (name) on each and every label.

I want them to look like this:

John Smith
123 Main Street
Charlottesville, VA 22901

But instead they all look like this (the underscore I typed in is actually just a blank space):

_John Smith
123 Main Street
Charlottesville, VA 22901

I've tried everything I can think of.

The spreadsheet cells for names do not have an extra space in them before the names. I have one column in the spreadsheet called Name that has the entire name of the person I want to appear on the first line, so I'm not using separate values for first name and last name, it's just one: Name.

Please advise. Thanks so much!

I bought a pack of address labels 3 columns by 7 rows per A4 sheet.

As it's a brand Microsoft have never heard of there is no preset label format.

I have carefully measured pitch, width, height etc but when I print a full sheet of labels it goes across 2 pages! It never used to! lol

I take it it's nothing to do with Page Setup as surely that's what I have specified?

We have Win7 desktops using Office 2003 professional or standard. Doing a mailmerge of addresses into a label format is producing an odd error. After going through all of the steps to select the database (Excel 2003) file and creating the first Address Block, we click UPDATE LABELS and it is only updating the top two and the bottom two of an Avery 5961 sheet of labels. All of the labels between the top and bottom rows say <Next Record> with no <Address Block>. I simply cannot figure out why this is happening.
We also use Office 2003 Standard on the corporate network by logging into a Citrix session, where it works just fine in a mailmerge. Any ideas on what could be causing this, and how I can fix this???

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

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.

"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".

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?

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??

One has created labels many times from using tools, labels and envelopes and has a database or table format document already set up with addresses. Now if one decides to create labels by using mail merge can they somehow convert this format so it can be an usable existing file? Any insight appreciated. Thanks.

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.
