Default merge labels

I am trying to merge a list of labels. I selected an Avery A4 format (L7160),
selected my data source, which is a Word table, and followed all the right
steps. It shows each entry correctly in the preview labels option, but when I
merge- eith to a document or direct to the printer, it produces only the
first label on each page, leaving all other labels blank. What am I doing
wrong?

I'm guessing that you're using Word 2003. In Step 4 of 6, after you set up
your first label, there is a button in the "Replicate Labels" section that
says "Update All Labels". Try using that if you haven't already. Then move
on to preview and merge.
