Default Labels from a mailmerge

I am trying to print labels from a database but it keeps putting one address
on each sheet of labels, how can I fix that? Thanks

Default Labels from a mailmerge

It appears that you have missed the step to propagate the arrangement of the
merge fields from the first label to the other labels on the sheet.

See how what you are doing differs from the instructions in the appropriate
one of the following articles.

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

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

See the article "Mail Merge with Word 2007" on fellow MVP Graham Mayor's
website at

http://www.gmayor.com/merge_labels_with_word_2007.htm

However, if you are using a Tablet PC, you may need to use the following:



Macro to overcome the problem with propagation of mail merge field fields
with a label type mail merge when using a Tablet PC and some other Computers
that have Tablet PC Functionality available:

Sub MailMergePropagateLabel()

Dim atable As Table

Dim i As Long, j As Long

Dim source As Cell, target As Cell

Dim myrange As Range

Set atable = ActiveDocument.Tables(1)

Set source = atable.Cell(1, 1)

Set myrange = source.Range

myrange.Collapse wdCollapseStart

ActiveDocument.Fields.Add Range:=myrange, Text:="NEXT", _

PreserveFormatting:=False

source.Range.Copy

For j = 2 To atable.Columns.Count

Set target = atable.Cell(1, j)

If target.Range.Fields.Count 0 Then

target.Range.Paste

End If

Next j

For i = 2 To atable.Rows.Count

For j = 1 To atable.Columns.Count

Set target = atable.Cell(i, j)

If target.Range.Fields.Count 0 Then

target.Range.Paste

End If

Next j

Next i

atable.Cell(1, 1).Range.Fields(1).Delete

End Sub



It is suggested that you put this code into a template that you save in the
Word Startup folder so that it becomes an add-in and will be available
whenever you need it. As the macro has the same name as the Word Command
that is supposed to do the job, this macro will run when the Update Labels
button is used when setting up the mail merge label main document.
