I have created a one label on a template that has six labels.  The label required a lot of formatting and cropping and placement.  It has four pieces put together.  Is there a way to  copy the label to the other five boxes "in tact"?

What do you mean by a label? If it is several shapes, you should be able to select each one, while keeping the control key depressed, and then copying (Ctrl+C) and pasting (Ctrl+V) elsewhere.

What I mean by a label is, I am using the labels tab in WORD to create badges.  I have coped i logo and have cut it down in different places to get what I needed for the badges.  The completed version of what I want on each label (badge) is a concatenation of two pictures and three text boxes.  

The sheet for the badges has six badges on one sheet.  I was hoping there was a way to duplicate (as is) what I have built in the first box on the sheet without rebuilding it 5 more times.

It worked fine when I selected the entire cell on the label spreadsheet.

Thank you for the explanation. It must be a new facility in 2010. (There are other things from previous Word versions that were called Labels).
