Default Bad spacing of text on labels

I want to print a page of labels, 8.5 x 11, ten down and three across, but
the text is ill-placed on the labels.

When I print it, the text in the first column starts at the left edge of the
label: no left margin on the label. In the middle column a little text is
clipped off on the left all the way down. In the third column a little more
is clipped off on the left . Also, on all labels the right margin is too
wide, resulting in undesireable wrapping. What can I do to to print well
placed text on all the labels? My printer is Canon PIXMA ip4000.

I'm running WindowsXP 2002 Home Edition with Office 2003 Professional
Edition installed.

Create a label template formatted the way you want and do a mailmerge to it.
Or create the labels first and then format.

Default Bad spacing of text on labels

Thanks, Charles. Let me get started on the label template, which I take to
be a page setup with blank labels, 10 down and 3 across. I stumbled across
this way of setting up a page of labels in Word as I was working on my
project. I'll have to rediscover it. Anyway, once I find it I think you're
suggesting that I enter mail merge fields on the labels and then merge my
data to the fields. Right?

On creating the labels first, then formatting: that's where the problem
with the right LABEL (not page) margin comes in. Word's dialog window for
the label has the wide right margin and I don't know how to adjust it. For
that matter, I can't adjust the left label margin, either, which starts the
text right at the left edge of the label.
