If you have Microsoft Word, you can open a template of the label you're using (which is free from Avery if it isn't already in Word) and make that document into a mail merge document.

I have installed Avery for my Word 2007. I am trying to do labels from an existing excel spreadsheet, also 2007, and when I get to the point to select from existing file it says there was an errora and...

Jill (guerinje),

I might have a solution for you.

I recently ran into this issue as well. When using the Avery Wizard (Avery Wizard 4.01 - US 20111209.exe), I was able to select the Avery Product template, the customization Design, and could select the 'Merge data from an existing data file' option, but when I clicked 'Next' to continue, I got an aborted list of recently used data files and then an error pop-up stating that the Avery Wizard encountered an error and needed to close. There was also the option of notifying Microsoft of the error.

Here is the solution that worked for me - TAKE CARE - This solution makes changes to the computer's Registry: WARNING: Using Registry Editor incorrectly can cause serious problems that may require you to reinstall Windows.

These instruction are for Windows XP. Other operating systems will most likely require adjustments to the steps below.

Step 1: Open the Registry Editor: Click the Start Button -- Select 'Run...' -- Type regedit -- Click 'OK'

Step 2: Select the Registry Entry: In the Left-Hand pane of the Registry Editor, double click on 'HKEY_CURRENT_USER', then on 'SOFTWARE', then 'Avery', then 'Avery Assistant', then '4.0', then single click on 'Recent Data Files'.

Step 3: Backup the Registry Entry: On the 'File' menu, select 'Export...' -- Select your Desktop for the 'Save in:' field -- Enter a name for the backup of this registry entry: I used 'Avery Recent Data Files' -- Make sure the 'Save as type:' is Registration Files (*.reg) -- click the 'Save' button.

Step 4: Delete the Registry Entry: In the Right-Hand pane of the Registry Editor, ignore the entry for '(Default)', select the entry for File1, hold down the 'Shift' key on your keyboard and then select the last file value (for me it was File9 - File10 was actually listed between File1 and File2) -- When all the File entries are selected, right click on them and select 'Delete'.

Step 5: Exit the Registry Editor: Either Select the File menu's Exit option or click the red 'X' button in the upper right corner of the Registry Editor Window.

Step 6: Restart the computer

Step 7: Login again

Step 8: Test the Avery Wizard in Word to verify it works. If it does not work: You should restore the registry values you deleted by double clicking on the 'Avery Recent Data Files.reg' backup that you saved to the desktop in Step 3.

Step 9: If the Avery Wizard works again: You can delete the 'Avery Recent Data Files.reg' backup that you saved to the desktop in Step 3.

And that's it. This process worked on the two computers that were having this issue at my office. Hopefully it will work for you as well.

Good Luck,

How do you convert a .zdp file to a .jpg file

It doesn't look like you can export directly from Avery Design Pro to JPG, but you can download a free copy of Design Pro Limited from Avery's site. Then, you can load you .zdp file and use alt-printscreen to get an image of the Design Pro window. Then, paste the image into Photoshop or a similar program and crop out everything but the label.

I'm trying to print the cd label on the label paper but it's offset and won't print in the right area. I calibrated the printer but it still won't work.

Some CD label software allow you to adjust the "overprint" by resizing the image you are printing. If your software doesn't allow you to size your image larger than the label (so it overlaps) try a different program. Look for a setting that allows it to over print. It's not an exact just have to try to make the adjustments you need. There are also different CD/DVD label sheet types where the labels are setup on the sheet differently. maybe a different setup may work better. However, usually Avery is pretty good.

CD/DVD Labels

To answer your question accurately, we'll need the manufacturer and the style or product number of the labels you purchased. If they're Avery, or other popular brand, you should be able to use Microsoft Word or Microsoft Works templates which are provided online for free. At the very least, you should be able to (using printout on blank paper as a template) maneuver the label design to fit within the area that your labels occupy and then when you print onto the labels you'll see even more accurately how to adjust future printouts (if necessary). I always do this, even when I use the Avery DesignPro software (free version from Avery). It helps me to keep from having to throw away misprints when the print runs off the edges.

Hope this will FixYa!!!

Avery DesignPro Error while initialising

Reinstalling and restarting won't solve the problem. For some reason Avery design pro limited attaches it self to windows user account. You can create another windows user account and run the program and it will work. When you start the program in the new windows user account it will ask you for your name "Author Name".

Avery Ink Jet Magnetic Sheets - 3270

It worked fine for us on an Epson. We printed about 40 sheets fed one at a time. Do not stack the sheets in the feed hopper, they stick together because of the magnetism.

There is no template because the material is not die cut. It is just full 8.5x11" sheet size.

Avery laser addressing labels l7160

What software are you using? I use Microsoft Word to print my Avery labels, and quite often have to tweak their templates by simply adjusting my margins on the page. I do a 'select all' and then add one tenth of an inch at a time until the proof sheet looks just right. If the labels are a bit off, you can also adjust the pitch in the label options dialoge.
