Default Excel to Word Merge

I'm trying to merge an Excel database to a Word doc to produce labels. I
have followed Word Help and can get the first page of the labels to appear,
but no pages afterward. There should be a couple of hundred pages total.
What am I doing wrong?

Nevermind. In the Mail Merge Wizard one would think choosing Complete the
Merge would, um, complete the merge, but it didn't. I found Graham Mayor's
tutorial where he shows you must choose Merge to New Document from the Merge
toolbar. It worked! Thanks.

You are not actually executing the merge.

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