Stupid Word is driving me nuts... I'm trying to print mailing labels through Word, mail merging them to an Excel file. easy stuff... in fact I did this already once today successfully.

But I need to do it again, and now the "Update Labels" button isn't turned on. If I merge this, I'll get one label per page, just the top left label.. not 30 labels per page. I can click "preview results" and scroll through each one, verifying the merge is working and the fields are linked properly. I just need to click "update labels," and the damn button isn't working now.. :rant: yes I rebotted, to no avail.

I found a machine still on office 2003 and redid it, works perfectly now, even in 2007. :rolleyes:

Whatta PITA. Always seems flaky to me.

In my experience that's about par for the course for Word - I hate that program.
