Creating a sheet of labels using Mail Merge in Word 2007
I have just made available on Lulu.com for a modest price ($3.75 per copy) a downloadable tutorial about creating a sheet of different labels using Word 2007’s Mail Merge feature. This article is not available in my Word 2007 book, though I might include it in a forthcoming supplement.
The tutorial deals specifically with labels — a topic I decided to address because setting up a page of labels that aren’t identical isn’t straightforward in Word — but the general principles about using Mail Merge can be applied to form letters and other types of merge documents, as well.
Providing training materials in electronic form is something of an experiment for me. At this point, I’m not sure whether I will allow downloads for a limited time period (a month or so) or make the article available indefinitely. I’m also uncertain how to price individual articles, so the $3.75 introductory price could change at some point. In any case, you can purchase the labels / mail merge tutorial on Lulu via this link. It is in PDF format.
Because it is a download, there are no shipping / handling charges, and the article will be available to you immediately.
Please keep in mind that it is a copyrighted work and is not to be duplicated without my prior written permission.
I hope the article proves useful to you!
