I read prior posts and know to use the avery label for them, but I'm having
trouble inserting a return address on the label. It doesn't seem to show the
option? Any help on how to insert the return address would be appreciated.

Simply type the return address into the label.
You can create a new document from the label wizard if you find this easier
to edit and you can save the return address as an autotext entry for ease of
re-use.

To clarify, I open a new Word document, then start "mail merge wizard",
pick label, 3263 postcard, arrange recipients, 300-400 of them, insert
address block, and merge. T
The formatting won't allow me to type in the return address. That's where
I come short, it also won't let me insert a Postal Bar Code anywhere but the
far left, instead of over the address block. That I think I can conquer
though.
Graham, I appreciate your reply, but it doesn't seem quite so simple for
me. What am I doing wrong?

It does help if you supply all the relevant information - such as this is a
merge!

See http://www.gmayor.com/mail_merge_lab...th_word_xp.htm

Don't use the address block field. It rarely works as you would expect.
Insert the individual address fields where you require them.
Type the return address in the first label, then propagate the labels.

The bar code field is simply another field. You can insert it wherever you
want. It may be worth pointing out that I understand the bar codes are not
compatible with the requirements of the US postal services.

Essentially you format the layout of the first 'label' then when you are
happy with that layout propogate to the rest. You may find it useful to
insert the fixed text (the return address) in a borderless text box with the
wrap set to 'Square' before propagating.

If you are not entirely happy withy the results, edit only the first cell
then repropagate.
