    Labels : Mail Merge

    I like to re-use labels I have already set up, however (Word 97), say I want to change the format of one of the lines, I have to do this individually to 33 labels on the page. Is there some master view where I can change them all at once?

    Your help would be very much appreciated.

    Hi
    You could try a search & replace with formatting in the "standard" label document.
    e.g
    <<Town>>
    could be replaced with <<Town>> formatted in Patatino, red, 36 pt font

    Just use the standard EDIT | Replace dialog box and note at bottom centre the format button

    Taking this one step further, can I change/add fields without changing every label?

    Add, no... Word does not allow for adding a field in the Replace dialog. However, you can use it to change fields by viewing the code (Alt+F9) and then changing the components of the fields. After the replace has been completed, select the document (Ctrl+A) and update fields (F9).

    Hi Elisabeth,

    If you are generating a full page of the same label, you can add your formats in the Envelopes and Labels dialog box prior to creating the labels.

    Just right-click your selected text and you should see the Font command.

    Cheers!
