When you choose print there is a Mail Merge option that says "Don't print lines with empty fields" (company name, address line 2, etc.). check this box before sending to printer

    Hi there !

    For printing bulky letters or documents of the same format, I suggest you use the MS word mail merge document. You need to set up the mail merge document and the data of the file. For examples, the list of names, addresses telephone numbers and others should be input to the envelops.

    Here's how to create mail merge document file.

    1. Open a new blank MS word document or if you have a format already in a MS word format, just use it as default letter.

    2. Go to menu bars (Home, Insert, Page Layout, References, Mailing, Review and View) and choose Mailing.

    3. From Mailing, click on select recipients, choose use existing lists and find the excel document files that stores all the information like list of customers, company names, addresses, telephone numbers and others.

    4. Open it and select table will appear and just click ok to merge it automatically to your default envelope.

    5. Now you need to set up or format your envelope. from the Mailing menu, Insert Mail Merge Field will appear and click it to display the headings of your data source. Put the headings wherever you want.

    6. After that, press preview result to display the datas. Save your work and it is finished

    How do I print just one mailing label without running through an entire sheet time I print using an Epson LQ-590 and printing from the mail merge option in MS Word (MS XP)? In other words, when I print...

    I assume you are using a sheet of labels, such as the typical 3 x 10 sheet. Word sets up the mail-merge document for printing the whole sheet, so if you print just one or two labels, you will `waste' the rest.
    One way of using that sheet over is to create a mail merge that contains blank `dummy' addresses. It is rather involved and at best time consuming, and considered not worthwhile to save a partial sheet.
    I service printers, and personally do not recommend that any label sheet be re-used. The printer curls the paper, in some cases fuses it, and causes the corners of the labels to be exposed, and possibly get caught in the printer (I have removed a lot of labels from inside printers)

    Intermec PC4 is skipping over blank labels when it prints. It prints one label then skips over 3 or 4 labels before it prints the next one

    Make sure that the label is not larger than the printable area, carriage returns and spaces count as part of the label too. Also make sure that in the printer properties you didn't set the page width wider or higher than the actual label. Especially using MS Word, you may have to adjust the label slightly smaller to compensate for margin, header, and footer settings. Also be careful of mail merges which merge data larger than the viewable area on the label.

    Printer keeps printing blanks...

    We have found a reset that we use.
    We unplug the printer and then we hold down the feed button and we keep holding down the feed button while we plug back in.
    It goes through some sort of a reset and this sometimes works.

    On the File menu, click New.
    In the Works Task Launcher, click Templates.
    In the Letters and Labels category, click Mailing labels.
    Click Use this style.
    In the Labels dialog box, click Mailing labels.

    The Label Settings dialog box appears.
    Under Printer Information, click the option for the printer you are using.

If you need more help please simply reply to this by posting comments, and I'll be notifited right much faster than happening across a request for help by chance; the system will send me an e-mail to make me aware of your comments.
