Default How do you save a mail merge label document as JUST a label doc?

I am doing a mail merge in Word 2003. It works fine, HOWEVER, I want to keep
the file so that when I open it, I don't have to go through the mail merge
process all over again. I just want a file of labels with my addresses in
it. Is this possible? Thanks!

Execute the merge to a new document and save that.

Thank you for the quick response, however, this didn't work. It only gives
me one name on the page (there are supposed to be at least 2 pages of names).
I have also tried using the icon on the Mail Merge toolbar to change the
document to a Normal Word Document. This gives me a full page of names (but
only one) and leaves blank lines (where there is no address2). That would be
fine if it gave me all the names on my list. Any other suggestions? Thanks!

When in your original post you said that "it works fine", what did you mean?
If it worked fine merging to the printer, it will work fine merging to a new
document.

Maybe it doesn't work at all in which case you should take a look at:

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

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

and make sure that you have followed ALL of the steps.
