    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):

    Thanks for your answer.  

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

    Thanks for your input!
