How do I use Excel to pring labels with the Zebra LP2844?


I'm going to assume you can already print from the computer to the Zebra. I am also going to assume that since you have Excel, you also have Word. The first thing you need to do is layout the labels in Word. I cannot be more specific because I have no idea what size labels you are using.
Create and print labels

Next you need to merge the values from Excel into Word

When I try to merge my excel document with 250


Hi deloisr

It looks like you have chosen the wrong data file. Probably an earlier version of your data still present in some folder.
Check these
Do you have column headings for every column?
Make sure which folder contain the file? What exactly is the name?
When you are in the Microsoft word, make sure you select the correct data file for your mail merge. If you have selected the correct data file, when you attempt to insert the merge fields, there is no way, it give wrong field names.
The only reason you get the erong field names is because you have the wrong excel file for your data. Fix this problem first, then the rest will sort themselves out.
Have a good day.

How do you print envelopes?


More information is required so I will only assume you are using Excel as a database. Excel is a spread sheet program used by accountants or for mathematical formulas and ledgers. Access is the Database program, however, Excel has functions which is faster to sort and work with address, phone number, zip codes. I will confess, I use Excel as Database because it is quick and easy. I do not know what version of Excel you are using so I will describe it from Office 2007. From Excel make sure you have headers above each column i.e. First Name in Cell A1 Last Name in Cell B1 Address in Cell C1 ect.

Make sure your data is correct and case sensitive as you would like it. If you want zip+4 select the Colum and right click to format the cells using special and select Zip or Zip+4.
It is easiest to use Microsoft Word for the next step rather than format the cells, add page breaks, and customize the print size.
Save your document as an Excel document where you can find it to import it into Word.
Open word and select Mailings then Start Mail Merge and Step by Step Mail Merge.
Select Envelope and next. Select envelope options to change envelope size, font and print options.
Click on Next Select recipients.
Click on browse under select an existing list.
Select the Excel file with your address information.
From the Select Table check the First row of data contains column headers.
Click on the OK buton.
Arrange your envelope then Preview it and your good to go.
If you have an older version of word selects Tools and click on Mail Merge.
Select Get Data.
Pull down Excel for document type.
Select entire Spread Sheet.
Layout your document and complete the merge.
On old versions of word it may not recognize the Excel file. If this happens open the Excel file and save it as a Database File (.dbf) and it should work.
I hope this helps since I did not have enough information from your question.

Unable to complete merge process.


Make sure you have closed the "data source" your excel file before trying to merge. This has been throwing different errors but not allowing the merge process to continue.

Is your Excel data in various worksheets or in the same worksheet - And does your Excel source data contain headers in the first row. Once you have selected this from the range you will

At what stage are you failing in the merge now?

Mail Merge won't print


AppleWorks is a quirky and hopelessly outdated product. I am aware that a few people have an extreme fondness for it however.
It should only have taken minutes to import data, but don't do it in AppleWorks - they stopped making it years ago and it is unsupported and non-standard.
I have just taken two AppleWorks databases, - one older and one newer that needed to be combined. I exported them as tab delimited text and then imported them into Excel (You could use Apple Numbers - the modern equivalent to AppleWorks). Because the to db's had different headers, I imported them into two different Excel docs first and moved the columns around so the matched first, them copy each column over to the 'master' excel sheet.
You can either use the basic database tools in Excel, or once your data is combined and in this kind of data form, it is easy to import a .xls, or .csv into a new database program, such as Filemaker.
If you do copy over the data to Excel, any merge function - for label printing etc. has to be done in Word (or at least up to Word 2004). I was thrown by this until I realised you have to do this. Once a merge doc is set up with the right labels, it worked beautifully. Typical MS though it is a wholly unintuitive process.
Copy and importing data should be done with attention to care obviously. Make sure you have your original AW files backed up before you start.
