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

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

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 http://support.microsoft.com/kb/832797#appliesto for the works database mailmerge.
