Word 2007 label - positioning query

  sheila.weston 11:43 14 May 2011

I want to print a single label in Word 2007, using a page of Avery labels which are two across and seven down. Is it possible to position the label on the page ie as the labels are used up? The first time I select the 'single label' option,the top LH label prints, but for the next label with a different address I have to select print a sheet and stop the printer after it has started printing, so that only a few labels are printed. This obviously wastes a few labels each time. Surely there is a simpler way?

Thanks for any help.

If you have open the letter you want an addressed label for, Click on the Mailings icon in Word 2007, then Labels, click on the Single Label then choose the position on the page of labels you want to print. i.e. Row 1 Column 1. Equally so, if you just want a label, then bring up a blank document and go through the Mailings/Labels route again and type the address in the label window and pick the particular position of the label you have available in the sheet of labels.

Hope this helps.

As I understand it you want to print a single label. First time top left and then gradually fill up the rest of the labels.

On mailings tab - Create - click on Labels. Then in the window that opens,select single label and then under that the row and column. Type in the name and address as required.

Many thanks, both. Obvious when you know how!

Apologies for the delay in replying. I don't get an email when someone replies for some reason.
