Question about Microsoft Works 8.0 for PC

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

Aimiel,

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 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!!!

Thanks,

Aimiel

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 labels...like 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

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)

Label Printing


The printer is not the issue here...That is a great printer BTW.

The issue is which program are you using when trying to print out these labels? Do you have Microsoft Word, Works, or some simular word processor program installed on your computer?

There are free document templates that have all the settings for printing 2 x 4 labels and others. Here is a link for a 4 x 2 tem-late that would work in any version of Word, SureThing CD Labeler and any program that handle PDFs.

http://www.worldlabel.com/autoconfig/autotemplates.asp?finditemnum=ol125

You can take label printing to the next level by using a program that will read in your address book and print each on one label automatically. You don't spend time trying to type them all in.

If yo have MS word, look under HELP for "mail merge", that wil get you on the right track.

Let me know =)

Different names on labels


What software are you using? Microsoft Word and Microsoft Works Word documents have a Mail Merge function which will do what you've asked about.

Lables do not work


Dear Carol this sounds like a page setup problem more than MS word version problem. You might like to re adjust the page size, dimensions and text to rectify this problem. You can also try emulate same dimensions from your older verion of MS word into new one. There are alot of things that are not compatible with new MS word like file extension .docx cannot be opened in previous versions.

You can also use image editing softwares like photoshop and corel draw for making labels, way better than MS word.

If this was helpful kindly press solved.
