Set up a table 2 rows x 2 columns, set our one then copy to the others

I do not use Word, mine is WordPerfect but it comes under Format/Page/Margins or it can be done in page layout

plus can just drag the margins, as mine can be seen but they do not print

I often go to the table method as a quick way out.

You can also format the page (in landscape) so that there are two columns.

Then type the first column with the name as you would like it to be, centred in that column.

Make as many line returns as you need to place the second name.

Alt+i b, c, and Enter will put you straight to the top of the second column, treat it like the first.

After the last of four names, press Alt+i b, Enter and the next page will open at the top of a new column, and so on.

thanks guys, one way I can do it is to view the page at 200%, but that doesn't allow me to view the whole page at a time thanks wiz-king, I have tried that and now it is sorted,
I appreciate allyou help and advice, many thanks

If you change the Page size so it fits your screen. Set Margins as needed Also choose Label with four on a A4 Page. When you have created the first label press Ctrl+Enter this will show a new Page Each time you do it so all fit a A4 when you print it
