Default how do I get rid of grey highlighting in fields?

Having spent ages compiling an address book and creating mailing labels from
it, I can't get the grey highlighting in the fields to disappear. I don't
want these when I print the labels.

If you execute the merge, there will be no field to be highlighted. It
sounds like rather than executing the merge, you are just previewing the
results.

See the article "Mailmerge Labels with Word XP" on fellow MVP Graham Mayor's

You can however turn off the field shading under ToolsOptionsView in Word
XP and earlier and under Word OptionsAdvancedShow Document Content in Word
2007.
