Microsoft Word/Microsoft word/avery template numbering


I work for a printing company, we need to make labels (avery 5960) to read like this for example:

Invoice Book
1000 - 1025

Next one to automatically generate
Invoice Book
1026 - 1050
and so forth.

our previous program was so old, it finally gave out. but it use to ask starting #, number of books, then what increment to use.

is there a easy way to get what we want? handwriting numbers for 50 books is getting tiring!

Hi Laura,

This program you speak of may have been programmed by macros to ask the correct questions.

I also believe that if you use a program such as Microsoft Access (or even Excel) you can create a mail merge, for example to produce the labels.

Hope this helps
