    re-formatting labels after a Merge has merged (2000)

    Greetings friends,

    I'm wondering if there's a way to change the formatting of all the labels at once, once a Merge has already been run. Or does it have be re-run? I'd essentially like to get back to the "Create Labels" dialogue box where you enter/set up a "Sample Label", rather than having to re-run, re-select the data source, etc. I did figure out how to use <ctrl><tab> to insert tab characters, which is one step toward being able to manage the formatting of all the cells at once.

    Thank you!
    Angela

    It depends. If you want to apply a different font, that shouldn't be hard. But if you want a different label layout, it's far easier to re-run the merge from scratch than to try to modify the merged document. For each page of labels in the merged document is a separate table, it would be very tedious to edit.

    I was afraid of that! Yeah; I'm essentially wanting to return to a step in the wizard, without having to re-run the entire thing (once I've had a chance to look at how the data comes out). This is for a job that frequently has different data in it, so I don't always know at the outset how much space I'll need to leave for each field.
