    Label format in Word 2000 (2000)

    I have a user who created a page of labels by going to Tools/Envelopes and Labels, clicking on the labels tab, clicking on options, selecting the Avery number (5766 - File folder labels), clicking on Okay, then clicking on New Document. As you know, this creates a table formatted for the appropriate Avery stock number. She wanted several pages of labels, which you can normally accomplish by tabbing from the last cell of the page. This should create a new row, thus a new page and the page should be formatted like the first page. However, with this particular label (5766), the second page formatting didn't match the first page and the labels didn't print correctly. At least two other people (myself included) have tried to do this (on other computers) and have gotten the same results. However, when I try to do the same thing with any other label, the second page is correctly formatted.
    Does anyone know of any special issue with this particular label format, and if there is a fix for it? Thanks so much.

    The issue is that it has spacer rows between the labels.

    Word Around -- if this is a format she uses frequently, then make an autotext of it. Create a blank exactly as you describe. Then before inserting anything, select the whole table and go to Insert / AutoText / New. Give it a name (Like FileLables). Now you can call it up whenever you like.

    If you do not need it frequently, you might simply insert a manual page break and copy the table with copy paste to the second page. Only shortcoming: You have to be careful to delete any empty paragraphs at the beginning of the page since otherwise the table will be to low on the second page.

    Yeah, that was the solution we suggested to her. It did not please her. These users. <img src=/S/hushmouth.gif border=0 alt=hushmouth width=16 height=16> Karen - you're absolutely right and it didn't even occur to me. Thanks so much for the help.
