possibly you have to click into tools - labels and envelope to use it?

enable it...

I can't remember exactly, but it thinks it's via Tools>addins.

Possibly another issue is the security settings for Vista. I clutching at straws with that one though... and I don't know how to adjust it, as I don't use it! Sorry,

Do you really need Avery for Word 2003? According to Avery, in an e-mail from them on another query that I raised, they suggested a method that uses the built-in Avery template within Word 2003. The following is pasted from their e-mail:


1.Open a new blank document (white page icon on the toolbar under 'File')
2. Go to TOOLS, then select ENVELOPES and LABELS
For Microsoft Word XP, click on 'Tools' - 'Letters and Mailings' - 'Envelopes and Mailings'
3. Click on OPTIONS
4. Change the label products to Avery A4 & A5 sizes (if on Standard)
5. Scroll down and select the desired label template and click OK (this takes you back to the
previous screen)
6. If you want a whole sheet of the same details on the labels then type in the
white box, then select NEW DOCUMENT.
If you want to type in different addresses or details onto the labels, leave it blank and select NEW DOCUMENT.

You will then be able to format the text using all of words facilities. If you want to use an address book or database to put on the labels, then you need to use the MAIL MERGE facility in Word.

If you cannot see the template please follow the instructions below

To view the Gridlines for the Labels please follow the instructions below.

1. Click on "Table"

2. Now select "Show Grid Lines"
