I'm trying to build a set of "Avery 5160" labels to match the letters
I'm printing via mail merge, using the same spreadsheet data source.
When I select Mailing Labels as the new document type, I am presented
with a drop-down list of databases. I've registered the spreadsheet
during the letter creation (though it has seemingly created the database
multiple times, as it shows me 4 or 5 options with the same name) but
when I select it in the labels dialog, it shows no tables and no fields.
Help! How do I get the "registered" databases to show me the fields and
The mail merge process seems to be pretty cumbersome. Aside from this
problem, labels aren't created the same way Letters are, and I had to
search and try things for hours to figure out how to insert address,
salutation, and other fields manually (I don't like the address block
approach of the wizard). The system seems to think my merge documents
are damaged, launching the recovery system every time I open them (see
my other post), and discarding the auto-recovery entries doesn't help.
This really shouldn't be so hard to do.
