Print Labels in Word 2007 from Excel

  bartonside 14:28 19 Jan 2010

I have been trying to set up a label printing programme, following the instruction in Help. I have printed these out and followed them faithfully but keep grinding to a halt in Step 3 - Linking the worksheet data to the labels in the mail merge. Everything is OK up to instruction 4, clicking on MS Excel Worksheets via DDE(*.xls).
Then I get a blank nworksheet and a security warning which is not referred to in the instructions so I Disable it. This is where things grind to a halt, It says "In the Microsoft Office Excel dialogue box, for Named or cell range select the worksheet that contains the info you want to merge and click OK. I can't find Named or cell range and I presume that the dialogue box is the Office Button in the top left hand corner and Named or cell range isn't in there. Please can someone help me? I am DESPERATE - I have to print about 300 labels next week and I cannot make this system work. I am running Windows 7.

No need to message me - I have solved the problem. It was unfamiliarity with Word 2007 that floored me. I discovered the Mail Merge Wizard is still there (which I have used before) and it worked fine! I just wonder why Microsoft have produced this long and complex document when the Wizard is easy to deal with.
