Default Same address printing on all mail merged labels - why?

Using mail merge to print shipping labels, from an Excel file.....which I've
done successfully in the past. This time however, I have my first address
duplicated on the entire page (10 labels), the second address duplicated on
the entire second page (10 labels worth), the third address.......

What did I do wrong??

Just to add to Graham's message, you probably do not have any { NEXT }
fields (Next record fields). Usually you need one at the beginning of
every label cell except the first.

The file does show the "next record" fields. I'll check into the links
provided above too. Thanks for your help!
