Hi there,
i am looking to do a mailshot directly from Excel. Let me explain:
I have a list of customers and thier addresses, and rather than having to go to work everytime to plug into the excel s/sheet I would like to be able to create labels (always the same type) and print directly form excel.
If there is code to do this great, I could asign it to a button I guess.

    rather than doing it with pure excel (which is possible), I would do it this way:

    Create a word document and design its format so that you have your lable design.
    then use the "circular letter" functionality of Word to make your Excel sheet the datasource and whoop - you can print as many lables as you want
