Is there a simple way to print address labels from works data base.I am using XP Professional And have Office Home&Business 2010 installed.Previously a click on "tools" has brought up the neccesary inputting but now that has disappeared.Help.I do not want to type out the whole lists again unless that is the only way.I do not have much experience of computers being an 83 year old Silver Surfer.NackerP

Are you wanting to use Word 2010 labels and to Mail Merge the addresses from the data source Works Data Base?

Print addresses on envelopes or on Staples STAP21 labels by direct printing Nacker

Apparently Works Database no longer has the print labels option under Tools so now you have to use Word and Mail merge to labels.

Microsoft moved the label feature to the word processor when it introduced Works 6.

Which Word program do you intend to use, Word 2010 or the Works Word processor?

Here are the instructions for Works Word processor ClickHere

1: "Mail merge a Works Database file"

Ignore my red ClickHere, this nutty pca forum has somehow turned a microsoft url into an apple iOS 6.0.1 Software Update link. (Scratching my head, as have not got any apple software/phone or visited that site)

This is the link for the works database mailmerge.
