Default merged labels - how do you save the merged document for use later

I am sure this is a simple problem to solve. A user is making labels in Word
with source from excel which is about four pages long. Once the merged
document is complete, he wants to save it as a document that he can make
changes later but keep it in label format. He used the wizard to create his
labels. We tried to use the button on the merge toolbar called "main
document type" to change it to a normal word document but it only saves the
first page of the labels.
What am I doing wrong?

You need to execute the merge to a new document and then save that.

As you mention the Wizard, you are obviously using either Word XP or 2003
and that being the case, I would suggest that you select Toolbars from the
View menu and then check the Mail Merge item to turn on the display of the
Mail Merge toolbar. It has a button on the right hand end that executes the
merge to a new document.

That can also be done via the Wizard, but it is a bit confusing. That's the
way with Wizards.
