How does one print Microsoft address on three column address label sheets?  I have tried using Microsoft directions for interfacing with Word, but without success.  Your help will be very much appreciated.

Unfortunately, my answer can't be very specific since I don't know which version of Word you're using.  It's also difficult since different label manufacturers use different specifcations when they lay out the sheets of labels.  

However, this is what you should do if you're using Word 97:

Select the 'Tools' menu, then 'Envelopes and Labels'.  Click on the 'Labels' tab, and fill in the blanks, using whatever options you need, from there.

Another option (if you're using standard Avery labels) is to go to the Avery site, and download the Avery Wizard software.  It's a pretty capable program that will walk you through the steps in a very easy fashion.  The site's URL is:

Actually, I'm at fault for failing to provide sufficient information.  I was in a hurry.  I am trying to use the address book in Microsoft Acess and interface it with Microsoft Word to print the addresses on labels.  I have printed the instructions for this from the help menu, but there is not sufficient, clear detail for me to get it to work.  I am using Microsoft Office Pro 97.  Thanks for your response, and if you can provide additional information that will get me up and going, it would be very much appreciated.  Duane King
