  • Save your input file on your hard-drive in a place where you can find it readily. Microsoft Word will want to read it later for the merge process.
  • Now start up Microsoft Word. I use version 2003 but this process should work for most recent versions of Microsoft Word.
  • Once it is up, click on TOOLS on the top of Microsoft Word

We then click here to select Labels

  • I recommend you print on plain printer paper and then look it over for misspellings, layout problems and so on.
  • If you find an error, exit Microsoft Word, fix your input in Notepad and then do the process over.
  • Once it is all looking correct, print on label paper.
