I'm trying to create labels and only the first label (top left) is being printed on the page. Then it goes to the next page.
I inserted the merge codes.  (See graphic).

You need to copy all other field codes, i.e. Address, zip code, state... etc to all labels on the page.

Hello brothertruffle,

there is a command on the Mailings label called "Update all labels" in the "Write & Insert Fields" group.

You set up your fields in the first label, then click that command and all the other labels will populate automatically.

The same goes for changes: Make changes only on the first label, then click "Update all labels" and the changes will be reflected in all other cells of the table (after all, a label layout in a Label Merge is just a table).

Does that work for you? If not, please post a sample file that shows the problem.

cheers, teylyn
