Join Gini von Courter for an in-depth discussion in this video Creating labels, part of Word 2010: Mail Merge.
When you need to address envelopes for a large mailing, you can use mail merge…to create sheets of address labels by creating a connection with your data…source to Microsoft Word.…Each label will contain one address from one record in the data source.…But you can use this same process for far more than just address labels.…If you go to an office supply store, you'll see CD labels, folder labels, name…tag labels, anything else you like to print. And any of these label-like products…can be created using merge in Word 2010.…
Let's go to the Mailings tab.…I have a blank document open.…As with envelopes, if what you wanted to print was a single label or an entire…page of identical labels, you wouldn't use mail merge for that.…You would simply use Create Labels.…We want to create a group of labels tied to a data source, so we're going to…choose Start Mail Merge > Labels.…In just a moment, the Label Options dialog box opens.…There are two different types of labels stock.…Most of you probably have what are called page printers.…
