Re: How to create mailing labels in Microsoft Works

With a Microsoft Works Word document open, select: Tools>Labels>(the list of available label types will pop up, select the label sheet you're using) then select: Tools>Mail Merge>Open Data Source...

Don't know how it could be simpler.

Re: How to create mailing labels in Microsoft Works

When choosing "Labels" the first screen gives three choices, Individual, Same or Merge. The second choice is what you want. You will see one label, create the label and formatting that you want. Click Print Preview and you will see thirty identical labels.

Re: How to create mailing labels in Microsoft Works

One label is all that comes up. insert the field you want example address block, back to tools>merge>select names>then click on ind. names then click select, they will go into merge recipients then click ok. Confirm on view results or check print preview.
Note: You will need to click on merge mailing labels from data source (3rd down) when 1st selecting what type of label sheet, select size, new document, Click merge from address book (or data source), then insert the fields, then back up to tools as above.
Hope you don't have Vista, doesn't seem to work properly.
Hope this helped.

Re: How to create mailing labels in Microsoft Works


When I do the mail mege in MS works, instead of getting 30 labels on the merged document, I only get one label. If I copy all the fields and create 30, it gives me 30 labels of #1 label instead of #1-#30 individual labels. This is where I am getting stuck

Can you help?

Create labels on Word 7 with Avery 8250 labels

I am assuming that you want to do a mail merge from a list.

If you list is in Excel, you should be able to click mailings in Word. It will take you through the steps to create your set of labels. [It will help with other places for your lists besides Excel, too.

I have Microsoft 2007...where can I make a database for labels?

Go to tools and goto the print labels and start a new label. It will ask you to creat one or merge from a data base and at that point you can create your own. Save it and then you will use Data merge to merge it back into the document.

I ask you to do it this way, since you will ultimately use it in this capacity.

Office professional

The purpose of microsoft office is to give your business functionability. If you need to write a letter, create labels, create a spreadsheet, create graphs, create a presentation, you will need an office suite that will allow you to do that. The business operating system is just operating system. In lieu of spending $400 on microsoft's product, however, you can get the same functions from a free office application such as open office. You can go here to download it.

Thanks and please take a moment to rate as fixya.

This is where I get stuck in trying to make Labels in Microsoft Works

Create a mail merge label with the Address Book
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.
Click OK.
The Label Settings dialog box appears.
Under Printer Information, click the option for the printer you are using.
Under Label Information, select the label product and style.

If you're seeing 30 of the same label, try adding <<Next Record>> to the beginning of each label (including the < > characters as shown). 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.

Hope this will FixYa!!!

Labeling from exel

If you follow the Mail Merge instructions built into Microsoft Word's Mail Merge Wizard, you can use your Excel file as the data source for your Mail Merge document, which can be created using label templates built into Word or downloaded from the label manufacturer's website. If you need more detailed instructions, please let us know what version of Microsoft Office you're using, as well as the Operating System (PC or Mac, Windows '98, XP, Vista, Leopard, etc.) and the label manufacturer and label name and product number. Please let us know if you need more help.
