    I have the same problem I've used works in the past for mail merge labels out of address book. Now have works 8.5 on vista. I Click tools, labels, Click merge labels, select size, new document, back to tools, click merge, click insert names (this is after checking merge from address book & inserting address block) names come up, click on ind. names then select then ok.
    View fields sometimes holds the selected names other times it clears them & only keeps the last one or two you select, sometime clears all of them and shows, There are no entries in your mail merge list that match the filter options for this document. I have been able to get up to 30 selected names then it clears all of them (They have showed on print preview) have been unsuccessful in finding out what the problem is tried all help areas.
    The beauty of creating labels through works is if you change any thing in your address book (now called contacts on vista) it changed on all documents you created out of the merge.
    Never had a problem on xp or millinium.

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.

    Is there a problem which you haven't stated? Were you able to use the directions that I gave you. If you're familiar with Mail Merge in MS Word, then Works Word should be a chich. What's the hang-up?

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.

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.

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?

I am having trouble sending a document from Microsoft Works to an outgoing email as an attachment. What do I do to accomplish this. I'm not very tech savvy Thanks for your replay

What e-mail are you using? If you are not using microsoft outlook (or outlook express) the easiest way is to create and save the document, then go into your e-mail create the mail you want to send then click on attach (or attachment) and dig down and find your document you just created.
Then you just send your e-mail and you should be good.

I’m happy to help further over the phone at

How do I get my hp deskjet 6940 to print labels. I'm trying to print Avery 5498 labels

You will have to use software to make the Microsoft Office Word, Open office Writer, or Microsoft Works. In MS Office Word (2003) go to tools->letters and mailings -> envelope and lables. Create the label you need.

If you use open office, go to File->New->Labels and create the label you need.

After which, you put the paper in the printer and print them out. May want to check out the size so you make sure it prints correctly.

-best of luck

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.
