    Mail Merge (2000 and 2002)

    This should be obvious. I want to send out postcards (which are an Avery label, four to an A4 sheet) with the name of an association, the date of the next meeting, and boxes to tick for coming or not coming, with the names of the members taken from a data list (the one I use to prepare the address labels, that works fine). I try to do it by preparing a master document, but when I try to use it as a label Word deletes the material I have already typed. If I do it as a letter I only get one per physical page, the other three cards remaining empty.

    What am I doing wrong?

    In Word 2002:
    Save and close your master document.
    Create a blank new document.
    Activate the mail merge task pane.
    Specify that you're going to create labels, then click Next.
    Select the option to use an existing document.
    Select (more documents...) and click Open...
    Select your master document and open it.
    Click Next, then continue as usual.
