Need multiple records in merge fields on same document

I need to merge fields from Access into Word but with each successive instance of the merge field, to fill with the next record.  I'm making postcards so 4/sheet.

So you just want to do a merge with four post cards per page, each post card having a different entry?  All you have to do is put in each table cell of the master document (that's all labels/postcards are is just a table) a <next record> merge field in each box (if it's not already there) and the merge information (<<address block>> or whatever you're merging).

Here's a good tutorial on mail merge (the labels section will be what you're looking at in this instance): http://www.addbalance.com/usersguide/mailmerge.htm

Thanks for your answer.  

Actually, this did not improve on my problem, but it was what I was already doing.  

I don't have time to work on that now.  I may repost again later.  Access is more of a problem right now.  

Thanks for your input!
