How do I change settings in label template from inches to metric

Hi all, I posted a question about the spacing and printing of labels back in 10th Jan this year. Got a lot of help from you and resolved it. Since then I have done re-instal so no longer have the template that I saved. Referring back to my earlier posting in Jan I found all the settings I need posted by lotvic. The problem I now have is that when I go to Word\labels\J8651 I can only find an option to enter in inches which clearly wont work, I just need to know how to enter the settings in metric then all should be fine.

In Word top toolbar | Tools | Options | General tab, near the bottom is the choice for Measurement Units - change it to centimetres, and click on OK.

That should do it :)

Thanks lotvic, thought it would be easy just a matter of knowing where the settings are.
