Making labels through mail merge in Word 2007 RRS feed

  • Question

  • I am trying to create a list in Outlook for use in making labels through Word 2007 mail merge, and can't seem to figure out how to do it.  I have found instructions on the internet, but some of the commands it tells me to use aren't even there to use. 

     

    Can you help?

    1. Build base (excel will fine) with names of the columns, after that - close file.
    2. At Word click on marge and labels/select a size standard from labels box
    3. Select the recipients (look your xls file)
    4. Adjust the field (use xls kolumns)
    5. Update the label

  • Hi Laura,

    Building on what Oskar has shared with you ...

    If you are wondering how to create the Excel file from your contacts you can go to Outlook and select File > Import and Export > Export to File > Microsoft Excel and it will build the file in the old xls format from your Contacts directory (once you point it at it).
