Default mail merge labels in Word 2003

When trying to print labels with mail merge in Word 2003, only the first row
of labels per page is populating. The remaining rows on the page are blank
and the labels continue on the subsequent pages. After formatting the first
label on the first page and clicking the Update All Labels button, only the
first row of labels takes the Address Book fields.

Default mail merge labels in Word 2003

If you are using a Tablet PC, there's a tablet-specific problem in this
area - see

If not, let us know.

I am using a tablet pc, but I was assisting a user who is not. She is
running it on a server running Windows Server 2003.

Default mail merge labels in Word 2003

Hmm, I wonder if Windows Server 2003 actually has the same bit of Windows
code that causes the problem? (normally I'd try and check here but
jeapordising my server's a step too far :-) )

I can only suggest
a. copying the cell contents manually instead of relying on the propagate
labels function (once you've copied to row 2, it should be fairly easy to
copy/paste to the other rows, and if the merge needs to be repeated then it
should be enough to save the mail merge main document as a .doc, re-open it,
and connect a different data source if necessary, and re-map the fields if
necessary
b. raising a support incident with Microsoft (we're just volunteers here)

Thank you for your help. It actually works now. I had to completely start
from scratch and after cancelling out of an ISAM error it appears to be
working correctly.
