Microsoft Word/Mail Merge -


I'm using Windows XP Office 2003- Mail merge for multiple duplicate labels for one sheet. I put the information in the first label spot and press propagate to fill in the rest of the sheet. It fills in with {next record} When I go to print the labels {next record} prints. I don't know how to reset not to print the word {next record}

Karen - I would review the following article on Labels (near the bottom) and see if there is anything here that would apply.  Like did you type in a field, did you actually print the labels or just preview in print preview.

I would start from scratch and create the labels one more time just in case something was missed the first time.

Check back if you still have the issue and let me know what type of data source you are using and if this is a brand new mail merge or if this is an old form.
