Help with Mail Merge

  dazwm 10:20 13 Feb 07

I am using mail merge to make some labels. The data I am using is on a spreadsheet containing numbers. A1 1300, B1 1300 C1 1400 etc etc. When I go through the mail merge wizard and I choose the data it says 'next record' on the labels rather than the numbers I want. What am I doing wrong please.

Is your data in a column or a row?

Just 1 column (A) with various numbers in each cell going down. I even tried putting data in column B but it still does the same.

I presume your data is in Excel and you are trying to Merge into Word?

I've just reproduced exactly this and it works fine for me so I think we need some more info. If you click the envelope I'm happy for you to email me and send me the spreadsheet/document to take a look at if you are happy.

Yes silverous that is correct. It seems to work on a colleagues PC but he is using Office 2000. I am using Office 2003 and I am having problems. The wizard is different and more complicated!!!

Ah, I'm more of an office 2000 man myself. If the same thing is working on your colleagues PC that suggests something wrong with your install or the way you are going about it I guess!
